Sew-in Reminder Notice: Montgomery, VFW, 121 N River St. Tuesday, July 18

We meet around 9:30 (ish) until - ?? Going to be as thorough as I can as we had a lot of newbies join here on our Facebook page after the Oswego Vietnam Wall weekend. Welcome newbies!! Bring your sewing machines and quilting supplies. We have kits available and very able bodies willing to help you along if you're new to quilting! If, and it happens, you're just curious, well we have pressing (could use another ironing board), cutting and kit, you won't be bored! Most of us bring along a lunch--there are a couple restaurants nearby if interested.
We are also expecting a "special guest"...for the newbies, that means a Veteran expected to receive his Quilt of Valor!
Joyce is collecting your plastic bags. She makes "plarn" and crochets beds for the homeless. ..another great cause.
ok, now this: If you've been coming via Rt 31, please note:
"Motorists who drive Route 31 in Montgomery will want to avoid the four-lane highway beginning Saturday, July 15.
The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) is scheduled to shutdown the highway on July 15 at 9 a.m. to allow contractors to replace the rail crossing just north of the Aucutt Road/Webster Street intersection."
At the Jericho light at Lake St, (Rt 31) make a left and an immediate first right turn (before the viaduct), to East Lake St. make a left onto Rathbone .. it'll take you to River St. Make right, cross Ashland and you're along the River to the VFW. Call me if you need to.
If you come in through Montgomery Rd. from the East, it should not affect you.
See you Tuesday!
