Tuesday and Friday Sew Ins
from 10-5 every Tuesday and Friday! The girls sew on Tuesdays, as well as Fridays lately, and we invite you to join in the fun. Bring a project to work on or start a new one and join us for the day. 10-5 both days, bring a dish to share on Fridays (they have been going out or ordering in on Tuesdays)
***** Tuesday and Fridays have become very busy days for joining our sewing group. I am always so happy to see everyone and hear the laughter coming from the classroom. However, parking has become a little bit of an issue. Please note that there is a rear entrance to our building and parking at the rear entrance on Baker Street. If you plan on spending the day with us, please fill parking in the rear of the building first, you make park along side our building and are welcome to park in front of Maryland Marbles building in any of the 10 spots there that are available. This leaves some open spots in the front of the building for customers that will not be staying to sew all day. Please do not park in front of the daycare center or block their entrance/exit on the side of the building or entrance to their playgound. Please note, if you need help getting your items into and out of the building, we will be happy to help you, just let us know. Thanks!
