President’s MessageJoan Tozer

This time of year, calls many of us outside to work in our gardens or yards or to go on road trips or maybe even a camping trip. However, I hope that you still find time to be in your sewing room.  I look forward to seeing all of your projects during our show and tell at our meeting on June 5th.  Remember that this meeting will be our end of the year potluck and it will start at 6 pm. Looking forward to seeing you once more before the summer. See you Tuesday.   Joan
