  1. Planning a visit on Mar. 3 with my friend who is a former Brooklyn quilter (=she doesn't live in Bklyn anymore and doesn't quilt anymore, but she knows Susan Sato from way back when.) Would love to run into any Metro Mod quilters while we're there!

    1. I will look for you Janet. I co-coordinated the Botanical Inspirations exhibit with another Brooklyn Guild member and we are conducting a walk through so check the info for the time - around 1.
