Location – Jeffersonian – Kentucky Room – 10617 Taylorsville Rd, Jeffersontown, KY 40299

Join us as we celebrate LNT’s 45th birthday!
We will be playing the game Left, Right, Center. Traditionally this dice
game is played with quarters, but as seamstresses we will be playing with
Fat Quarters. Each person playing the game that night must bring 3 FQ
(or CJ will have some available to purchase if you’d prefer to buy them at
the party). One lucky person at each table will win all the FQ played at
their table.
Birthday cupcakes and light refreshments will be served.
