March 23 Newsletter

Things are winding down...and friends are going their separate ways for the's always hard to say as our Quebecois friends say...Au Revoir...Until We See you Again!

Safe travels to all as you head home or out and about to escape the Arizona heat. Remember the laughter, the hugs and the wonderful camaraderie of our sewing room as you work on projects this summer. Bring them to show us in the new season! Check into our Facebook page "Palm Creek Quilt Guild" and say hello or share what's under your needle. We look forward to touching base with those no longer able to join us through our Facebook page...see you there!  (Dang it...where's the kleenex?!)

Sewing Room Closure and Move
Our Sewing Room is closing soon to prepare for the building move.  Here are the plans.

Git Yer Stuff Outa Dodge by......All personal sewing machines and personal “stash” must be removed from the Sewing Room by 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 25th,
  • unless you plan to sew on Saturday night or Sunday, March 26th.  If you plan to sew on Sunday, March 26th you may leave your machines until 9 p.m on Sunday.  The room will close at 9pm Sunday.  If you sew on Saturday night and do not plan to return on Sunday, please take your machine with you at closing on Saturday night.
The following are exclusions to the above plan:
  • Individuals who are taking the Intermediate Quilt Class with Jean Prevost on Monday morning, March 27th, may leave their machines in the room until after the class.  Rental machines will be available for the class.  The room will be closed Monday afternoon for packing.
  • Individuals who are taking the Beginner Sewing Class with Linda Dey on Tuesday, March 28th, may leave their machines until closing at 4 p.m.  Rental machines will be available for the class. 
RENTAL MACHINES –Except for classes, the last day for rental machines is Sunday, March 26th.
No individuals other than the class registrants are allowed in the room on those two days as the room will be in a disarray due to packing and no monitors will be on duty.

Pods will be provided for storage of our sewing room equipment. Rental machines and cutting mats will be stored in the Ocotillo Room for the summer as it will be climate controlled.

Opening of the Ocotillo Room. A limited number of tables, chairs, irons and ironing boards will be brought to the Ocotillo Room for your use.  We plan to set up make-shift cutting tables.  The opening date for the Ocotillo Room has not yet been determined.   We will let you know as soon as we know probably via this newsletter and our Facebook page.  Our hope is to have it ready by Monday, April 3rd.  If it is ready ahead of time, we’ll let you know.
