Sit ‘n Sew – Oct 13th – Postponed

The sit ‘n sew that was scheduled for October 13, 2018 has been postponed due to a need at the church.  It has been rescheduled to November 3, 2018 from 9 am to 4 pm.  If you have any quilts of comfort ready that you planned to bring, Cheryl will happily receive them at her shop between October 10th – 12th during shop hours.  Thank you for your understanding and look forward to seeing you on the 3rd!

Days for Girls

Our Days for Girls liaison, Adriane, will join us again for our November guild meeting. She will bring us up to date on their latest projects and will collect our completed bags, liners and other donated items.
Specifically, she is asking for:
“Girls briefs (size 10, 12 and 14) and washcloths are always our greatest needs.

The other things we use but are pretty good for right now:
– wrapped hotel soaps
– large Ziploc brand freezer bags”

Bag and liner kits will be available at the October meeting, and please remember to bring your completed items or other donations to either the October of November guild meetings.
Thanks to all who continue to support this initiative.
