Annual Yard Sale: Coming Soon!
The 2016 date for our annual yard sale will be finalized soon! As always, the event will take place Friday and Saturday either the last weekend in April or the first weekend in May. The sale, featuring clothes, housewares, furniture, and more at bargain prices, takes place at the home of one of our wonderful members near major roads in Stony Brook, New York.

Gallery North Outdoor Art Show Demonstration and Quilt Raffle
Once again, Gallery North in Setauket, New York, graciously accepted us as demonstrators for their annual Outdoor Art Show, which took place September 19 and 20, 2015. While some of our volunteers cut, sew, and assemble a quilt, others sold raffle tickets. The winner of the raffle chooses a favorite from eight quilts on display -- the only time during the year that one of our handmade quilts isn't donated to someone in need.
