The Giving Quilt and Just Do It

Wow! What a great time we had at the Giving Quilt Show. I cannot thank the members enough for all of their help. We finished making 75 bears and many more are ready to stuff and finish.  We had stuffers, dressers (hearts and ribbons), butt sewers and face drawers. Pam, Karol, and Elsie took home bears to complete. Most of all we had a great time and got lots done for cancer services and OLOL. We had help from multiple children as well as adults from the community.

The show was the largest yet. There were over 600 quilts on display.  Our own Betty Braud received an Honorable Mention for her quilt "Crayons". In addition to all the quilts destined for a variety of deserving charities, there were Quilts of Valor on display that will go to some of our veterans.   Several shops had booths  and there were a few vendors as well. I can personally attest that the pulled pork nachos were as Pam would say "off the hook".

Next Wednesday, the 15th, there is a Rug Hooking Show at Nottoway Plantation from 1 to 4.  We are inviting everyone to go as a group for lunch and the show.  As of now, Pam, Karol, Elsie and I are going. We are going to make reservations for lunch around 11. Please let me know as soon as possible if you are interested. 

Thanks again for being such a terrific, talented group!
