Fabric Swap for April Meeting

Here's a message from Dorie regarding a Fabric Swap to be conducted at the April meeting:

Guild members, do you have fabric that has been hanging out in your stash for a little too long?  Maybe these are things you no longer care for or projects scraps that you're just sick of seeing.  If you'd like to rid yourself of these fabrics and perhaps acquire new ones, please bring them to our April guild meeting.

The swap will work like this:  Upon arrival at the meeting, put your fabrics on the designated table.  When the agenda gets to "swap time", we can all get up to peruse and choose from the table.  I think we can all manage to hold ourselves together and not act like warehouse sale crazies grabbing hunks of free fabric.

At the end of the meeting, you have the option of taking your unclaimed fabric back home or donating it.  Lynn knows several groups that make quilts for charities including the Ann Arbor VA hospital, Livingston County WIC, Safe House in Ann Arbor, and the Chelsea Senior Center, and she has agreed to transport the extra fabric.  Thanks Lynn!

If you want your fabric back, please label it with your name.  Bonus points to you for labeling any fabric with the line/designer name and whether or not it was washed.
