*Annual Scrap Swap:
Bring your scraps for our fun annual swap. A table will be set up in the back of the room for all of the scraps. Anyone who brings scraps will take turns choosing new scrap fabrics from the table. Once they have all chosen, the scrap table will be opened up to everyone to have a turn. It’s a great way to share the scrap wealth (or scrap burden…however you see it!). Use your judgement on what a scrap is, it should be a sew-able size at minimum. The Scrap Swap will be the last activity on our evening agenda.
Spring 2020 Day Retreat:
Spaces are still available at our Spring 2020 Day Retreat at Quilting Mayhem, March 27–29! Come for all three days, or pick the days you’d like to attend. Register here.

Let’s Stay Healthy!
The COVID-19 virus continues to be a changing and challenging situation. Our meetings, workshops and retreats will continue as planned. If we are forced to cancel due to closure of our venues, we will notify you by email as soon as possible. Here are some tips to help everyone stay healthy:
- If you are not feeling well, stay home.
- If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms, stay home.
- If you have a FEVER/cough – absolutely stay home.
- If you are experiencing respiratory distress (mild or severe), stay home.
- If you wish to avoid contagion due to being in a high risk/vulnerable class, stay home.
Some personal prevention measures to consider:
- Wash your hands often with soap and hot water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
- Avoid touching your nose, eyes, and mouth.
- Avoid contact with people who are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue and discard the tissue immediately, and then wash your hands!
- Please temporarily adapt how you greet one another. Hugging and handshakes are discouraged at this time. Consider other creative means of acknowledging and greeting one another.

Good stuff on the virus in this issue, David!

I will follow the recommendations for “old people” and not attend the Wednesday meeting. Is there some other way I can turn in my (not perfect) New York Beauty blocks? I could mail them, or??
Hi Harriet, we decided to cancel the Weds. meeting altogether. Please save your New York Beauty blocks and bring them to the April meeting. I’m glad you are staying healthy! Cheers, David
