From the West (Albany, Delmar, Schenectady, etc), take I-90 East to Exit 8, Route 43, Defreestville (second exit after crossing the Hudson River). Follow the very long exit ramp to the first light (Washington Avenue) and turn right. The road comes to a "T" with a stop sign; turn right onto Bloomingrove Road. The church will be on your right with parking in the back.

From all other areas where you do not need to use I-90, go to Routes 4 and 43 (a very large intersection). Turn onto Route 43 West (the entrance ramp to I-90). Go to the first light (Washington Avenue) and turn left. Proceed as above. At Blooming Grove Reformed Church, come in the door at the end of the porch; our meeting room will be on your left. Coffee and tea are provided. Bring a lunch and enjoy the camaraderie, the learning and the stitching.
