March 2019 Eugene MQG Meeting



We had 5 guests join us this month!

First Thursday Slow Stitch day:  There were 6 members who came to sew and share conversation last week.   Bring your hand sewing projects and come join us upstairs at Market of Choice on 29th St in Eugene, 10am-2pm.

Sew Day March 3.  Eight individuals came to sew and have fun at our recent sew day.  The next scheduled sew day is Saturday May 18, 10am-4pm. $10 to help cover the costs of the space.

Retreat 2019:  We have reserved the dates October 3-6 at the Big K Ranch near Elkton, OR.  This is the same location where we have held our retreat the previous three years.  More details will be shared as we get closer to the date.

Linda and Janice shared that they will have some quilts on display at the Long Tom Grange during the Daffodil Drive Festival.  It sounds to be a great weekend to take in this festival near Junction City!
