    We are having our Trash or Treasure event, at which you can rent a table for $10 (please plan to pay at the September meeting if possible) and sell your quilt items, notions, leftovers, and what have you. You may also share a table with a friend and split the cost. START PLANNING NOW! We will also have a KISSING BOOTH! And treats! Pat and Susan will bring their DYELICIOUS ice-dyed fabric for sale! Opportunity Baskets to bid (and maybe get lucky on)! MANY OTHER WONDERS! Of course we will also provide a “free to a good home” table to which you may bring suitable stuff. Invite your friends! Be sure they bring lots of money!

    Details for table-renters: Set-up will be from 5:45 to 7:00 with shopping from 7:00 to 8:00. Regular business meeting to follow the sales period. Proceeds of table rentals will benefit Community Quilts, but the money spent at your table is yours to keep. It’s a Win-Win!
