The Underground Railroad is on Track!

The first "official" meeting of the UGRC took place last night at the store with an amazing turn out despite the lousy weather. Thank you all for coming!We hope you enjoyed the refreshments as well as the meeting. We have "officially" started 2 groups. A Tuesday evening group which will have the first meeting on March 10th, 2009 and ladies it is full! and a Thursday afternoon group which will meet on March 12th, 2009 - there's still some room!

Nancy - our resident designer - set up an impressive display of books and quilts and everyone seems to have chosen at least one if not two projects. Nancy and I will be very busy the next 3 weeks preparing blocks, lessons, binders and history on all of your choices so we will be ready to get you started on your way to completing these awesome quilts.......

We are absolutely thrilled that The Underground Railroad Club is so popular and for those of you who signed up and could not attend last night's meeting, we will be happy to meet with you and help you choose a project and a meeting time.

Tonight is our Friday night Sit & Sew and as usual we are full to bursting so I am off to the kitchen to prepare dinner (that would be after a day at the office! Ha, ha!).....we also hope to have that luscious new fabric you all got a glimpse of in yesterday's blog and at the store last night, marked and on the floor!

Happy Quilting!
