    Rummikub- Thursdays

    Time: 1:00pm

    Rummikub is a tile-based game combining elements of the card game rummy and mahjong. There are 104 numbered tiles in the game valued 1 to 13. Players start with a set number of tiles and take turns putting down groups (7,7,7) or runs (7,8,9) using at least three tiles per turn with a player drawing a tile if they cannot play.  Players can build on tiles already put down during the round. Scoring is based on tiles used in the game.
    Beginners Welcome!  Hope you join us!

    Quilting- Thursday

    Time: 1:00pm

    If you are a quilter or have always wanted to learn quilt making, this class is for you!
    This class will combine the Beginner Quilting class with the Advanced Quilting class.  Some weeks will be used for group projects working on quilts that will be donated to local non-profit organizations and other weeks being “open-sew” classes where you will work on your own quilting project.
    Bonnie Doran and Sharon Stackpole will co-lead this class although there will be other knowledgeable advanced quilters present each week willing to provide guidance and to share the enjoyment of creating a quilt with the beginners.  “Show and Tell” will be a highlight of this quilting class.
    No quilting experience necessary but participants must have prior sewing experience and be familiar with using a sewing machine in order to join the class. This class has limited openings.
    **You must sign up with Hilary in order to attend this class.**
