WOW!! Another great month at the quilt guild!!! We again filled the grocery cart at the church. They are asking for things for a Thanksgiving Dinner this month. Turkey certificates would be very helpful or whatever you can do for them.
The Bed Blitz for 2017 is completed. Thanks to Deborah Hutchins and Cheryl Adam who helped Nancy Stone pack all the boxes on Thursday. Each box contained the following: Letter to each child, washing instructions for the quilts, a set of sheets, extra pillow case, fleece blanket, quilt, a book, a teddy bear and a pillow. Also each bed had a mattress. I was able to go out on Saturday and see the whole process of the building of the beds and the distribution. It was great to see the families getting their boxes and beds. It is time to start making quilts for Bed Blitz 2018. Don’t know how many beds they will do yet but we can start collecting quilts at any time.
Pam Buda is with us as a speaker this month. Hope to see everyone at the meeting. It has been great the last two months seeing the sanctuary filled with quilters. Friday’s workshop has a waiting list but I believe there are still openings in the Saturday class. Contact Linda Click if interested.
Feel free to contact me or any of the officers if you have questions. I want to wish everyone and their families a Happy Thanksgiving!
Carolyn Gatenby, President
