    Feb. 14, Saturday, 11:00am        Bona Robinson & Jodi Robinson Hostesses at Bona's home                         Limit 16
    Boni will do a demo of the Statler features for about 1 1/2 hours
    Lunch - pizza, pop, coffee (probably snacks and veggie tray)
    Hostess fee for lunch $5.00 (Anyone not wanting pizza can brown bag it, no Hostess fee).
    Then Jodi will demo for 1 1/2 hours on the premier.

    Note from Bona - Our meeting would be about 4 hours long.  I hate to have the attendees drive clear out here & then not
    give  them their efforts worth !!! If the weather is bad, I will have the attendees leave their cars at the Park N Ride & my DH
    will pick  them up there.  It's only about 2 miles from my house.  We live in the country and the snow is worse on my road than
    anywhere else in the world !!!

    Feb. 21, Saturday, 11:00 am        Sarah Bistline Hostess                                                                                       Limit 10
    I am planning to show the program Pre-Design Studio. It is very easy to use, you can scan a fabric or design, then make a
    panto, a dfx file where it can be put into a computing program, make a embroidery design, or a appliqué design.  There is a
    free down load where it can be used for 14 days before you need to buy the program. Then I thought I could show the
    different things I can do with the Compuquilter. Or if everyone wants to do something else that can happen also.
    Lunch- we can bring things to share or I can order a pizza and we can share the cost.
