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.

Quilts for Matthews House Hospice

Ten quilts, made by members of Quilting Corners Guild, were delivered on July 10th to  Matthews House Hospice in preparation for the grand opening of the new facility this Thursday. We had a sneak peek and were in awe of the wonderful building and grounds that will offer a variety of services to the local community.
Pictured below is one of the quilts on a resident bed received by Kim Woodland of Matthews House with Cheryl Dobo and Senora Baldry of Quilting Corners Guild.
