Workshop Openings

We have many openings in the May workshop with Marlous Carter and could use a few more people to sign up and help fill the class? It is on visual piecing. Also, there are still openings for Becky Goldsmith in May and Pat Pauly in June. We would really like to fill these classes for these great instructors, so please email me if you’d like to sign up. April and June workshops will be held at West Church in Haverhill and Becky Goldsmith will be held on the Friday after our meeting at the Plaistow library. Directions to West Church will be in the April newsletter.

Kennebunk Openings

Kennebunk Retreat now has 2 openings. Unfortunately, 2 members are unable to attend. If there is anyone who is interested please contact Sue Molin.
Because of the room situation at Kennebunk, there is only one room available so we can take a single or if 2 are interested they would need to be roommates.
Please contact me as soon as possible as the retreat is only a few weeks away.

The MVQ board meeting has been changed. The Plaistow Library isn’t available on the first Wednesday on the month any more. The new date is TUESDAY APRIL 4 at the Plaistow Library from 7-9. Liz is trying to find a new location so we can continue with Wednesday nights in the future.
