May 13, 2017 Guild Meeting
There is a Mother’s Day Brunch at the church from 10:30-12:30. So in order to accommodate guild and the brunch, we will be having our regular meeting in the Loft (up the stairs beside the bathrooms in the back hallway).
Set up & Clean Up for May: Barb L, Denise G, Cheryl M.
For set up, please bring food that doesn’t require the kitchen facilities. An urn of coffee can be taken upstairs and we can use paper cups for the coffee and tea. Please remember the cream and milk for the coffee and tea.
- Sewing machines can be set up in the Sunday school rooms in the back on the main level.
- Alternatively you can wait until 12:30 and set them up in the regular meeting place after the Brunch is over.
We will get started right at 9:30 AM, so please arrive on time. Beth will do demo right at 9:30 – but it will be short and sweet – very sweet.
