Coastal Quilters Annual Thanksgiving Potluck

It is time to leave the sewing machines at home, cook your favorite dish and bring it to share. We'll begin socializing at 10 a.m., eat brunch at 11, enjoy members' Show & Tell, and sit back for a trunk show - "Lesson Learned" - presented by Margie Engel.

Time: 10:00 - 3:00

Site: Scotty Culp Auditorium

565 Cassia Blvd. Satellite Beach

This will be our last gathering for the year. New workshops resume in January, 2017! Memberships should be renewed this month, either in person, or by mail to Dawn Gipson.

Click on the video below for the August 2014 quilt-in. Though the woman at the beginning is identified as Sheryl Milner, QAKH's coordinator, it is actually Margie Engel. Margie will quickly tell you that Sheryl is much better looking, and younger too! The real treat is seeing Lydia Howald, one of our senior campers.
