We have a variety of small groups that meet during the month. Some groups have full membership but many others are still open and are available for you to join. Consider joining one or more of these small groups or get a new group started. Sign up sheets are available at every meeting.
Our Small Group Coordinators for 2016 are Kathy Crabtree and Mary Plas.

Undercolor Club - This group meets the last Wednesday of the month at 5:30 pm at Dunn Bros. Coffee Shop in Coborn's on Cooper Ave. S. This group works with the "Color Play" book. Make a small project or bring fabrics to illustrate the color combination. Contact Marlyn Anderson firstname.lastname@example.org
Stearns History Museum Club - This group meets at the history museum on the first Friday of the month beginning at 9:30 in the morning. The group gets together to hand stitch pre-made little quilts that were made in honor of the Iran war. It is a huge project. All these little quilts were safety pinned to each other and donated to the museum. The museum can’t display it with pins so this group is whip stitching the mini quilts together. They are about half done with the project and are on year three. Interested members contact Marjorie LaTour or Sarah Howard.
