IT'S SEW TIME!
Would you like to get together with your friends for a "sew day?"  Here's what Bless My Stitches (Murphy) has for you:
"We have UFO Day on Thursdays from 10:30 to 4:30, but if there is another day you would like to get together with friends and have your own, that's fine too.

You can look at the calendar once it is posted and see the "open" days where nothing is scheduled.  Make a plan with some friends and give us a call.  We will have a UFO Day just for you and your group.  See the calendar at Bless My Stitches.

We try to keep social distancing the best we can, and try to limit it to 6 students in the classroom so everyone gets their own 6 ft. table.  You can choose to wear a mask or not, I leave it up to the individual".

Want to meet up with your friends at Fabrics Galore and Quilting Store (Blairsville)? Patricia says:

 

"We have TGIFriday every Friday except the second Friday. I leave it up to each individual to decide on social distancing or wearing a mask. To be comfortable with conditions I would say no more than 8 people at a time - that’s one per table.

Call the shop for available dates. To book the first day would be free, to rent the room on a regular basis would be $5 a person."
