PROGRAMS
June 16 meeting – Scrappy Quilts – Jane Cole
Jane gave a trunk show of her scrappy quilts and quilts from antique blocks she had collected over the years. In her collection she had a recent quilt that won 3rd place at Paducah.

Small Scrap bag Treasures – June 17 – Jane Cole

We had another fabulous workshop on June 17th. Jane Cole showed us how to use even the smallest of scraps to come up with original quilts. She made working in a totally new way fun. ThisGail Holttestimonial also verified by Bernice /Spitzer!

Nature to Paper to Fabric – July 22

If you haven’t taken a workshop yet, we have only one more. That’s with Judy Simmons on July 22nd. She will be teaching several techniques in her workshop entitled “Nature to Paper to Fabric”. Judy is a former home economics teacher and really knows how to help everyone create a wonderful project.

We earn the money for these workshops and programs by selling quilt tickets, so the classes do not cost you anything. It’s a great time of fellowship and learning both. I still have a few openings in Judy’s workshop if you want to give it a try.

HELPING OTHERS

Quilts for Heroes -Keep quilting!

Kitten/Puppy beds

A few months ago we were made aware of a need for beds. So far we have delivered 41 to the animal shelter and 11 to Sarge. If you are interested in helping you can make approx. 12 x 12 square pillows. Stuff lightly with all those scraps we throw away and sew closed. Keep one by your sewing machine and fill lightly. If they are stuffed to tight they are hard to wash. Or, bring your scraps to the meetings and we will finish them. They go in the cages and given when an animal is adopted. The critters would love to have beds made out of that fabric you can’t remember why you bought it!

Thanks

Bernice and Elsie

Sorry the newsletter is a bit late. I have been in Chicago helping my sister move. On the way back we managed to stay all night in Paducah…missed you all at Hancocks of Paducah. I contributed to the local economy for you!

Thanks for your patience.
