FCS Day - "Dine In"

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2020 FCS Day, "Dining In for #FCSsuccess," on December 3rd! Be sure to check back and also follow us on Facebook for updates this fall!

The Dine in Day special event, Cakes
and Quilts Birthday Celebration, was a success with over 265 registered to participate virtually! If you missed this event -- no worries! Here is the link to the December 3rd recording of the fun virtual celebration we had together!

Please feel free to share this webpage with other FCS colleagues or even host your own “watch party” during the holiday season! It was a lively BYOC (Bring Your Own Cake) event! Sit back and enjoy the rich history on Ellen Richard’s quilt and cakes of her era shared by AAFCS members experts, LynDee Lombardo (retired quilt expert and educator) and Sharon Davis (Home Baking Association and educator).
