Our next community service day is Nov 20. We are going to have a garage sale with the proceeds going to restock our batting and other supplies for Community Service. Please bring any sewing or quilting items you would like to recycle on Nov. 20th.  (ex: patterns, books, tools, rulers,). We will have several tables set out for you to shop at.  All items will be at very reasonable cost; we will want to move out everything brought in.
Also we will have about 30 charity quilts ready for you to choose from and to designate the group you want to give them to. You will be able to take them that day to deliver.
Lastly, if you have any aprons or other kits you have taken home to finish for the Fiber Arts Fiesta you can bring them to either Oct. meeting and we will turn them in on Oct 17.
December 4, at our Christmas Party, we will be collecting underwear for Storehouse West  “Kids’ Clothes Closet”.

267 Pounds of Food Collected for Storehouse

Lynn just reported that we donated 267 lbs of food to our local Storehouse!  Remember she will be collecting at the next meeting as well.  I just noticed in the Smith's grocery flyer, that they have their case sale going on...cases of corn, tuna, beans, etc...that would be 24 tickets in the can for that pretty, pretty quilt!

First September Meeting

It's time for the first September meeting!

If you don't have a nametag or you just want a new one you can make one at the meeting this week. Just bring a hand sewing kit that includes an embroidery needle, pencil or heat away marker and scissors. Thimbleweed will provide the rest.
Bring your things for Batik swap, block of the month any last minute questions before we go to camp.

And remember, Wanda is collecting all manner of things for the retreat silent auction.  If you have UFO's, fabric, patterns, or any goodies, you can either bring them to her at the meeting, or bring them to camp!

Don't forget to bring your food donations for Storehouse West.  Remember, every item donated gets your name in the raffle for that beautiful (I'd like to win it!) quilt!!  And, this is a lean time of year for the Storehouse, so we're really filling a void here!
