SCVQA 40th Anniversary Party
Posted August 30, 2015
There will be something for everyone at the SCVQA 40th Anniversary Party on September 28. Door prizes and gifts for each attendee have been donated by various committee members and quilt companies. You might take home some fabric, thread, a book, a pattern, a wall hanging, or other neat items. Former presidents have been invited to show quilts presented to them at the end of their terms. You may find a photo of your quilt or of yourself in the continuous loop slide presentation and enjoy celebratory cake and punch. Surprises still are being planned, so you will want to be sure this 9:30 AM meeting is on your calendar.
