Village Quilters of Lake Bluff-Lake Forest will have a Quilt Show, “Quilts from the Village”, on October 1-2, 2021 at the Libertyville Sports Complex located at 1950 US-45, Libertyville, IL 60048. The Raffle Quilt can be seen and tickets can be purchased at https://www.villagequilters.org/show. Silvia ordered tickets and it was easy. We are hoping to use this method for our quilt show, so give it a try!
At our December 2020 Zoom meeting, Carol Swenson told us about a community service opportunity. Lutheran Social Services of Illinois Foster Care Program is accepting small quilts to give to the children who come into their program. They most often come in with nothing. A quilt is something that is all theirs and they get to keep it when they leave. The quilts are simple and small, 24″x24″ or a little larger, and mean so much to them. Lots of ideas were discussed including making a tote bag or a pillowcase with a casing to put a drawstring through for them carry their quilt and any other items in.
If you’d like more information or to donate items, please contact Carol Swenson.
