March Meeting-All about Scraps

March marks the start of a new season, for both the weather and our guild. We are excited to announce the debut of our new logo and website/blog! We've begun integrating this new logo on our social media and our blog activities will now be held on this site. Come back each month to catch-up on the latest from our meetings and find helpful reminders on what to bring for the next.

The charity project for this month is the Crinkle Cloth donation for the Cincinnati baby shower. This was organized by Yo and members signed up to donate the materials. Packs of 10 were distributed to volunteers and these need to be completed by 1April. Please drop off to Abby or mail. Contact us privately for the address. Want to make some for yourself to give as gifts? Here's a great tutorial: http://viewfromthefridge.com/diy-crinkle-paper/
