FSS - First Saturday Sampler 2020



Veronica's Village in 3 Colorways: Vineyard Batiks, Modern Autumn, or Painted Ladies.

7/28/20: Update regarding this Saturday, 8/1, First Saturday Sampler (FSS) gathering

YES, we will be doing the full FSS morning program (almost like normal) barring any major changes in the next couple of days (which is what happened last time).

So, what does that mean? First, please (re)read the Welcome Letter from 6/30/20 below with our COVID-19 modifications.

Here’s the plan for Saturday, 8/1… we will open our doors at 9:00am and the program starts at 9:30am. We will be done by 10:30am.

Masks are required. If you can’t wear a mask, please don’t attend the morning program.

For the time being, to keep our program as short as possible, we will not be doing show & tell.

I have mapped out the paths for standing in line for kit pick up to get you up and out of the classroom space. However, to keep the lines shorter, I encourage you to check out some of our local restaurants for breakfast/brunch…or check out the Vacaville Farmer’s Market (Creekwalk Plaza at Andrews Park…only a few blocks away).

Parking is available in our parking lot (but don’t wipe it out completely as the bank is open), on the street, or across Parker Street behind the Ministry Center building.

The ‘rules’ still apply. You need to bring your completed block to receive your next kit for free.

If you’re not comfortable gathering for the morning program, this is totally O.K. Bring your completed block anytime on 8/1 (Saturday) or 8/2 (Sunday) to receive your free block kit.

Contrary to tradition, you can also bring your friend’s completed block to pick up their block kit for free. You must have their block to get theirs for free.

If you don’t bring your completed block FSS weekend, just like always, it will cost you $5 to get your next block after the weekend.

IF you find that you won’t be venturing out for the foreseeable future and don’t plan to continue the program, please let us know so we don’t cut a kit for you. We understand completely and respect your choice to stay away.

Hope to see you soon!
