4th Tuesday Sew Day -- August 22!!!

It's Official...  we've been able to schedule our usual room at the Pyle Center (Sedona Room) for a 4th Tuesday Sew Day.  Extended hours:  3p - 8:30p.  If you can't make it by 3, get there when you can.

No project to work on (which is not likely)?  No problem!  Just come and hang out.  Visitors are always welcome, so if you're new to the area or you're looking for a fun group to join, stop in for a visit.

Meeting - Tuesday, July 11

Come one, come all, to the annual Ice Cream Social! I know we missed a couple of times, but I'm sure that was due to haboobs or monsoons or something. :-)

We will have ice cream(s), a sorbet, a topping or two and even root beer and ice cream cones for you to make your ice cream treat a personal favorite!

Besides ice cream, there will be Cactus Patchers Board Transition activities, discussion regarding budget, Sew-Day Evaluations, and more! (Show - n - tell, for sure!) 

Hope to see all of you who are still here and braving the heat on Tuesday!

You don't want to miss this one!  Besides our usual business meeting, the scheduled program is:  SewBella's Quilt Cart.  Yes...  Fran is bringing her retro trailer filled with quilt goodies you can't resist.  She plans to arrive early to get things cooled down, so not to worry!

Guests welcome and we're open to new members!

News Flash

The Cactus Patchers have voted to make our 4th Tuesday in May & June a 'Sew Day'.  Instead of meeting from 6:30p-8:30p, we have reserved the Sedona Room from 3p-8:30p.  This will allow more time to sew and not be rushed. 

Next week, Tuesday, May 23, have a late lunch or bring a brown bag dinner for yourself and plan to arrive at 3p.  If you can't make it til later, that's OK!  We'll break at around 6:30 for any announcements necessary.

There is no additional charge for Cactus Patchers and guests may join the 3p-8:30p sew-in for a fee of $5.

There will be a couple of ironing stations & extra extension cords, but bring what you're comfortable with for your sewing project.
