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.

In the news….

Thanks to Irmgard, our guild has been featured several times in local publications. Copies of the June and July Farm View papers will be available at the July meeting for anyone interested in reading them.
