April 2017 Meeting

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all well and enjoying the beginning of spring.  I know I love looking out the windows at all of the blossoming trees.  Birds are returning to my feeders and squirrels are finding inventive ways to get to those feeders too!

I wanted to put out a reminder to everyone that next week's meeting (April 12, doors open 6:30, meeting starts at 7) will be held at our new location, the Eugene Garden Club (1645 High St.).  Remember High Street is one way, so the easiest way is to come from 18th, the Garden Club will be halfway between 17th and 16th on the RIGHT (EAST) side of the street.
There is some street parking but we are also allowed to park across the street in the parking lot for Jennings.  There are just a few spots directly in back of the Garden Club but please leave these open for those in the group who have difficulty walking.  We want to be sure everyone has the best experience and accessibility possible.

I was able to check out the space on Tuesday and pick up the keys and I am very excited about this new endeavor.  There is more than enough space for our guild to grow and offers a larger area to move around during the break.  It might also give us an opportunity to hang quilts for meetings and a large space for Bee blocks.

This is the area our meetings will be held in.  Lots of room and chairs for everyone.  A stage for those who like to draw a little more attention and cushions for the chairs :).

The other side of the meeting area.

Sitting area and adjacent room.  A nice place to sit and talk before the meetings start or during the break.

There is also a kitchen and large work room, if we might ever need these.

I hope you are all as excited as the board is to be trying something new out.  Please let us know what you think after the meeting.

I also wanted to remind everyone not to forget your dollars for our raffle, some great prizes have been donated to the raffle bag, so who knows what you might win.  I put a picture below of the added items.  I know I am excited to try my luck, although I could buy 50 tickets and still wouldn't be picked.

Again, I hope everyone is well and we can't wait to see you all in our new guild home.

Happy Stitching,
