December 2 Outreach Day We donated 95 quilts to NEHS for foster care children at our December meeting! Janet Burns was on hand to receive them. We are so proud of our members talents and generosity!
Next donation date is the June 2 meeting.
Coming Up We are brainstorming project ideas that would entice you to participate in October Outreach. We had such a great turn out last October. That makes it worth all the preparation! We provide the fabric and everyone cuts, sews and presses for outreach.
If you have suggestion please let us know. Here are some possibilities:
String Pieced Foundation Blocks-these always turn out beautiful-helps us use up the small pieces.
Cutting Workshop-no machines needed
4 Patch and Snowball Quilts-Teamwork (the last time we did this, we turned out 7 tops!)
Prepping Tops with Backings and Batting
Learn a technique to create a block by Missouri Star
Jelly roll project
We might take a vote!
Regarding Donations We are also looking at ways to process the fabrics we have on hand into kits for our members to assemble. We want to get better about FIFO. Fabric in, Fabric out!
We have been overwhelmed with fabric donations as of late. We would like to put a hold on general donations for a while.
We only need bright or child friendly fabrics at this time.
Please make sure all donations are 100% cotton.
We cannot accept bits and pieces unless they are already cut into 5" squares or 2 1/2" strips.
Thank you for all you do for outreach!
