Activities:  Discovery Days

Discovery Days class meetings occur in person at Woodside Village Mobile Park Clubhouse, 12155 Luther Rd, Auburn (behind Best Buy).  Guild mask rules, if any, will apply.


Discovery Day Teachers Are Needed for Next Year

We will have firm dates for classes in the last half of the year soon.  We are, however, planning monthly classes.  If you have a skill you can teach, or an idea for a small project, please contact Melody Peters (Discovery Days Chairperson) or send an email to Discovery@Foothillquilters.org
