Do you love to quilt or sew but just can’t find the time to make the projects you love? Give yourself the time to sew and surround yourself with fabric and quilters in October.

Yankee Quilters Guild, a local quilt group, invites quilters to reserve a space for your sewing machine at a weekend staycation on Friday, October 21st to Sunday, October 23rd at Christ the King Lutheran Church in Holliston. Participants bring their own sewing machine and projects with tables, irons, and cutting space available in a large, bright space. A crock-pot dinner on Friday night, pizza on Saturday night and a bagel breakfast on Sunday are included.

The three-day event cost is $95.00 for non-members or $50 for one day, including a one-year activity fee. Members cost is $70 for three days or $25 for one day only. Reservations and advance payment are required. For hours and registration information, contact Anita Stolle at (508) 321-1757 or anitastolle@gmail.com.

The guild’s regular October meeting on Tuesday, October 11th will include a potluck dinner and information about upcoming programs and trips, including a getaway to the Berkshires in March.
