Wednesday, April 6, 2022, 7:00 pm at the Saugus Senior Center– QUILT-O!!!

QUILT-O is just like BINGO but with quilty words and phrases instead of numbers. Everyone will get one QUILT-O card; if you want to play more than one, bring a fat quarter (any color or theme) for each additional card you want to play. This pile of fat quarters will be used for a prize at the end of the evening. We have buttons for markers, but we suggest that you bring your own; two dozen buttons or pennies will be enough per card. This way, we won’t have to handle buttons that everyone else has handled.

Prizes include kits, charm packs, notions, and fabric. And we’ll have the big pile of fat quarters at the end. Come ready to play and win!

  • Doors open at 6:20 pm.
  • Everyone must wear a mask, per Senior Center Rules and must sign in upon entering the Center.
