Mark your calendar for a fun evening on May 1, 2012 for the Treasure Auction.

I know I’m inspired to think about starting my spring cleaning, especially in my sewing room.
And doesn’t that work out just right with the annual Nimble Thimbles Treasure Auction.
This has been known in the past as the Chinese Auction, whatever name we call it, it’s our annual fundraiser for the guild. It is also lots of fun!!
Tuesday, May 1 is the date for 2012. We are now excepting all donations for the auction. Items do not have to be sewing or quilt related or a new item, but should be in good useable condition.
Lynn  and Joanne  will be collecting these items at our next three meetings. Please be generous this fundraiser helps pay for many of our projects and programs.
You can also bundle your items in a basket or bag to help us out. Small items work best grouped with bigger items. Any questions or if you want to help contact Lynn or Joanne.
