Astute observers will have noticed that there was no February meetup! But that’s all behind us now, and it’s time for MARCH EXCITEMENT.

SO:

When: Sunday, March 24th, 2019, 10 am

Where: Harvard Art Museum Cafe

32 Quincy Street, Cambridge, MA 02138

The closest T stop is Harvard, on the red line. The museum is about a ten-minute walk across the Harvard yard from the station.

Venue: The cafe is located in the atrium of the art museum. You do not have to pay the entrance fee to sit in the cafe area. The cafe has a small selection of pastries and other snacks, but if you have specific dietary requirements you may need to bring your own food. The building is accessible via a ramp on Prescott Street.

How to find us: I will claim a table and set up a paper sign. I will have my knitting and/or a painting project. I have coloring sheets, but you can also bring coloring sheets, especially if you would prefer to color something other than “historic architecture of Boston” or “woodland creatures.”

What to bring: Crayons, colored pencils, paints, coloring books, a puzzle, an explosive excitement for the onslaught of warm weather.

If you need more information, you can inquire on the “Boston” thread at FOCA.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!
