Reminder: Patchwork in the Park on Saturday!

As a reminder, this Saturday, July 9th is our first Patchwork in the Park event!  Folks are meeting up to enjoy the summer, chat, eat lunch, and bring their handwork and/or show-and-tell.

Saturday is expected to be beautiful and mild, so we won't need to use the raindate.  Here are the details:

Date and Time:
Saturday, July 9th
11:00am to 2:00pm

--Central Park, just WEST of the Great Lawn ballfields (under the trees in the shade).  Enter the park at 81st Street from the West side or the East side.  It is hard to give an exact location depending on the availability of space, but just walk along the trees on the western edge of the Great Lawn ballfields to find us.  Look for the folks with the quilts!
--Click here for a map (the Great Lawn is in the middle).
--Can't find us?  Email patchworkduck {at} gmail {dot} com in advance to get my cellphone number, or email when you get to the park (I have an iPhone and will check it regularly).

To Bring:
--Lunch and drinks for yourself.
--Dessert for the group (optional).
--Picnic blanket or sheet.
--Handwork projects!  Ideas:  quilt bindings, English paper piecing, applique, quilt labels, embroidery, mending, crocheting, a drawing sketchbook.
--Show and tell (optional and very informal).

--Feel free to include crafting-inclined friends (even knitters!) and significant others.  Warm-weather fun is all-inclusive!  Just warn them that it will be a sewing-focused day, so they should bring a book or other way to entertain themselves.  :)
--Please give us a rough headcount by posting a comment below!

PS:  For those who can't make this week's event, we will be holding another Patchwork in the Park day on Saturday, July 23rd.  Come to both events!
