Newsletter & Comfort Quilts Message

The October/November newsletter has been posted. Click HERE.

Comfort Quilts: The October 1st gathering to work on comfort quilts at the Quilters General Store has been cancelled since we have many tops completed. (These are given to our members if they have lost a spouse or have serious medical issues.)

We need four volunteers to help us get these tops quilted. Please contact Anne Brown or Vicki Tallacksen if you would like to quilt one for us. If you do not care to do the binding, we will take care of that. We will have the quilts at the October 4th meeting.

Thanks, Anne and Vicki
