Community Service Workshop

Community Service
Workshop May 2019

Donations were generous for the month of May. The inventory includes 8 lap, wheelchair, and full sized quilts, 4 fidget quilts, 1 wheel chair caddy, 8 pillowcases, 36 surgery caps, and 3 knit hats. All of your work is beautiful.

We received a thank you letter from Ronald McDonald House. Several quilts were donated to this organization.

The Sew – A – Thon on May 30 was a very successful event. Eighteen intrepid quilters gathered for the day to make surgery caps and lap quilts. With three quilt patterns and their variations available, the challenge was to create quilts from stacks of precut strips and squares. Everyone had a great time thinking outside the box and getting to know one another better. The group consensus was that we should do this again, perhaps on an annual basis. Sounds good to me. A big thank you to Sharon Gillette of Sew What for co-chairing and providing the fabric. A reminder for participants — all quilts must be completed and ready for donation at the July general meeting.

Once again, a reminder. Please Please Please make sure your donated quilts have CBQ labels on them!LABELS

Remember to pick up your label(s) for your Community Service quilts. We have them at the table, cut and ready to sew on.

Making and donating a community service project is a great way to share your skills and creativity with those in need.
