MINI MYSTERY RETREAT #2

Instructor: DEE ANGUS

 

The applicants for the MMR #1 were many but we were only able to take nine.  This time there will be two teams! Each will work on the same puzzle on different days.  You may choose the Saturday or Sunday Squad-but don’t wait too long and be left out again.  Once the weekend is past, who knows when there will be another join to the fun?

 

Remember, this is a day of sewing, socializing, stash busting (or building), and sampling food you don’t have to cook.  Not to mention the fun of seeing how soon you can work your way through the clues to a finished top

 

You will make a top during the day that is about 48” x 66” without borders.  It requires only three fabrics.  If you want to add borders, sign up for your first clue and additional fabric requirements.

 

Don’t wait!!   Fee: $35.00 Dates: Either Apr. 25, Sat  OR Apr.26, Sun., 10:00-5:00  Please bring your Lunch.
