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!

MEMBERS CORNER…If you have news or something for sale…..

Please email Kathy at if you have items for this area. Please send all articles by the 5th of the month. We hope to have the newsletter out by the 6th or 7th so watch for it. Thank you.

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.
