You may also pay for this  -- we will keep track of the balance for you. We will have a lady on site to cook.
I will also have a commuters rate for $40 per day.  This means you come in the morning have breakfast with us and stay until night -- last year they left around 8 p.m or so.

We will be starting new Second Saturday BOM in  August --- We will be having Eleanor Burns - Barns and Victory Quilts.   Please let us know if you are interested so we will have books in stock.    A reminder how this works is -- the first month you purchase the book and pay $5.00. for fabric for first block.  Next month you bring in your completed block and you get the fabric for the next month free.  You will have to purchase your sashing and borders fabric down the road. You may  stay and sew on your new  block when you come in on that Saturday.
