Sunday, October 9th In Person SEW DAY!!!!!

Location:
Harford Park Community Association
2522 Linwood Road., Parkville, MD 21234 (south of Taylor Ave., between Perring Parkway and Old Harford Rd.)
The hall is in Laura’s neighborhood, located between two houses. It has a big sign with “Harford Park” on it. The hall entrance is down the stairs at the end of the driveway. Unfortunately, the building is not currently handicapped accessible and there is a short flight of stairs down to get into the hall.
 
Parking: There’s plenty of street parking (particularly on Park Drive, which is the cross street to Linwood Rd.) but PLEASE be careful not to block neighbors’ driveways.  You are welcome to pull into the driveway if you want to drop off your materials and machine but then please park your car on the street. There is room for 3 cars in the driveway so if anyone needs handicapped/accessible parking, we can use the driveway for that.
 
Amenities: The hall has a full kitchen (with stove, oven, and microwave) as well as a refrigerator and freezer, which we are welcome to use. Please bring extension cords and power strips to be sure we all can easily plug in our machines. For communal use, Laura will bring her ironing board, iron, large (24×36) cutting mat, rotary cutter, and 6×24 ruler.
 
Time Frame: 9:00-3:30 (Laura will be there by 8:45 if you want to get there a little bit early – the more sewing time, the better!)
 
Any questions the day of? Text Laura Baltatzis, 443-756-6777. She’s happy to call you back but her phone silences unknown numbers so you might not get through to her if you only call first.

Sunday, November 13th 1:30-3:30pm
