Third Thursday Demo
Thursday, March 21

Join us on March 21 at 12:30 p.m. for our monthly Third Thursday Demo. This event lasts thirty minutes – feel free to bring your lunch if you are on your break. We always have door prizes at our Third Thursday Demo’s! Bring a friend!

March – This topic was rescheduled to this month due to the snowstorm in February. Sandy Cressler will be showing how fun it is to add crayons and colored markers to your blocks. This technique is sure to wow you!



Blocks Without Borders – Art & Landscape Group
Thursday, March 21
Blocks Without Borders (an Art & Landscape Society) meets on the Third Thursday of each month at 1 p.m.  Prepare to exchange ideas, along with giving and receiving inspiration.  Don’t forget to bring your Show-N-Tell! We will have a door prize! No RSVP necessary.


Because last month’s meeting was cancelled due to weather, we will be covering the same topics – bird quilts, post card quilts and flower pounding. We can also discuss what our next challenge project might be.

Our main focus will be our bird quilts because our hope is to have them completed by our April meeting so we can get them organized and ready for the festival in May. Please bring what you have to share with us! It has been amazing to see what has been done so far, and it serves as great inspiration for all of us!

I’m hoping that some of our friends who have been away for the winter will begin coming back, and we all look forward to reconnecting and catching up.

Take care, stay dry, and we will see you all on March 21st!
