Times, Days, Location
Our evening group meets the second Monday of each month at 6:00 PM so those who work during the day can come
join us. The day group meets the second Saturday of each month at 1:00 PM. Meetings are held at Hyderhangout,
219 First Street N.E., Cleveland, TN. Meetings last about an hour, with the option for members to stay longer for
fabric trades, demos or other more difficult techniques or projects. Members may choose to attend either or
both meetings per month.
Stashbusters "cash" may be earned by members for meeting attendance, special projects, show and tell and other
activities throughout the year. Get a list of how to earn bucks at the first meeting. What to do with these bucks?
