    Saturday, March 19th join us for a Pop Up Boutique Sale and Mini Meeting. We are hosting this outdoors on a member's driveway, so it is not a normal meeting. 12206 Melinda Circle, Saratoga.

    The Boutique Sale will be from 10am to 1pm. 

    We have plenty of new donations, so there will be something for everyone. If you haven't been to a Pop Up yet, the Ways and Means volunteers do an amazing job or organizing and pricing items so that shopping is easy and fun. 

    They will also be holding a live raffle, buy a ticket, and if you win you can choose from some very nice items, mostly fabric bundles. We will also have the Opportunity Quilt there so you can buy tickets to win that quilt. 

    The Mini Meeting will be from 11am to 12pm.

    We will have committee announcements and then Show and Tell! Many of our committees will also have a table set out, such as Community Quilts and the Quilt Show, Wrapped in Love. 

    Please wear a mask for everyone's comfort. 

    This is an outdoor venue at a member's home, so please bring a chair if you would like to stay for the meeting. We will do our best to spread out. 

    No early birds please!  

    If you have donations for Ways and Means they will be collecting them.

    In April we will welcome Youngmin Lee, a Korean-born Bay Area quilter, who will speak about Bojagi, the Art of Wrapping Cloths.

    Youngmin has a master’s degree in fashion design and a bachelor’s degree in clothing and textiles. She has been on Alex Anderson’s The Quilt Show several times and has been a featured speaker at the Surface Design Association conference.

    On April 25th Ms. Lee will talk about Bojagi, Korean wrapping cloths. These are possibly the most unique form of Korean textile art. The cloths can be described as a true form of abstract expressionism. They were used to wrap or carry just about everything from food, to clothing, to precious ritual objects.
