Sew-In: June 4, 2017

May 26, 2017
On Sunday, June 4th at 11:30am we will be holding a Guild Sew-In at the Arlington Heights Memorial Library (500 N Dunton Ave, Arlington Heights, IL 60004). 

Members and guests are welcome. We will be meeting in the Hendrickson Room on the second floor. There is ample parking at the library, both in the open lot and also under the library itself.  Please do not arrive before 11:30am

Please feel free to bring your sewing machine if you wish do to machine work. You are also welcome to do handwork. If you are bringing your machine and have a small extension cord, it is probably a good idea to throw that in your bag too. Don’t forget your power pedal, presser feet, and any other tools you will need! You are welcome to bring snacks with you. Board member Dani will be emailing attendees beforehand to organize irons and ironing boards. 

If you wish to take the Metra into Arlington Heights, it is the UPNW line, and it is a 0.2 mile walk straight north from the station to the library. If anyone has mobility issues and needs a ride from the station to the library, please let us know and it will be arranged. 

We are also going to do a scrap exchange! Please bring any scraps with which you wish to part. We will set them all out on a table and participants can pick through for goodies. The scraps remaining at the end of the day will be bagged up to use for doggie beds. 

If you wish to come into Arlington Heights for brunch/lunch ahead of time, or hang out afterwards for supper, there are many good restaurant options less than a half mile walk from the library. Here are some suggestions, but please check the websites for hours. I have tried all of these and they are all good!

Salsa 17 (Mexican)
Ttowa (Korean)
Porky’s (BBQ)
Armands (Pizza and Italian)
Peggy’s (Irish Pub)
Pho An (Pho)
altThai (Thai)
Around Cafe (Coffee)

We look forward to seeing you in less than two weeks! Please email the guild if you have any questions.

All meetings are 2-5 pm on the third Sunday of the month, unless otherwise noted.
