Valerie Barth received donated fabric from a former quilter, Margaret Stephens, which Valarie stored at her home & washed & folded into groups of fabric types of use. The guild voted to give non-quilting fabric, garment & sewing magazines & notions to the American Sewing Guild now. Quilting magazines will be used as prizes at guild meetings. Names of quilt groups who may be interested in accepting extra fabric for charity quilt work may be given to Valerie as some of the fabric may be shared.
Jessie Comeaux presented the completed “Wonky House Quilt” to Valarie Barth to deliver to Habitat for Humanity. This quilt that our members Participated in the making & finishing of will be raffled at their annual fund raiser in November, 2011. Our guild also made & donated eight quilts to Braveheart & seven to Habitat for Humanity. Habitat is also sponsoring an art auction at their Reuse store on
Our own Jan Delgehausen will present her program on how she makes a Christmas ornament that was one of those displayed in our two quilt shows at the library. She is requesting that members bring straight pins & small sharp scissors to use in making the ornament as she will provide fabric pieces etc. from her stash. This should be a wonderful.
