This year’s Spring Staycation will be held on Saturday, March 9th, at the Tacoma Arts Community Center at 1102 S 11th St, in Tacoma*. This is in the Hilltop Neighborhood, and right near some fabulous Tacoma eateries and a women-owned and run coffee shop called Red Elm. The cost is $20 for Tacoma MQG members, and you can pay via PayPal or arrange to pay via check or cash at our February meeting. (If you are not a current member, you can sign up for the guild here.)
The staycation will run from 8:30AM to 8:30PM, with half an hour of set up and clean up before and after. We will order a pizza and salad dinner around 5PM.
You can bring your sewing set up, but we anticipate that seating may be cozy (possibly two to a 6 foot table,) so perhaps consider a more curated set up for the day, with alternate projects in baskets or bins that you can switch out. We’ll have a few demo walls set up as well!
As always, the guild will have coffee going and a few treats as well! Please feel free to bring something to add to the community snack table.
Please let Jessie know if you can bring the following:
If you would like to help with any aspect of this fun day, please contact Jessie ASAP. We will need help with the following things:
Coordinating a drop off area at the event—parking will be limited to the surrounding area
Coordinating a snack “potluck” / table (including what the Tacoma MQG will provide)
Organizing ironing boards/irons/cutting tables/rulers/mats
Coordinating a pizza order
Organizing a few games to be played throughout the day—perhaps a door prize raffle
Organizing small goodie bags—perhaps procuring a few items from local shops (the few that we have left 😭)
Coordinating a small member-led demo or short lesson on some aspect of modern quilting that you really excel in
Day-of help: set up and clean up
*Parking may be limited to two-hour on-street, metered parking, so please be forewarned about that. You will probably need to move your car occasionally. We will have a loading zone set up and will help you carry in your gear.
