Twin Quilt Project News

The Twin Quilt Project is still looking for a new coordinator. 
 
We have an established routine for developing kits, a notebook for logging quilts in/out, and 2 delivery sites (Darmstadt Shelter, Northeast Center for Rehab and Brain Injury) that are very excited to receive our quilts.  It’s a perfect project for you and a couple of buddies!  If you’re interested in managing this, contact Linda A (her info is in the membership directory).  Due to renovations at my home, I will not be able to accept any more finished quilts.  Hold onto any quilts or tops completed until a new coordinator steps up to the plate.  Thanks!  — Linda

Email Hack

To all Guild members

I have just learned I have been hacked and someone is asking for large cash donations from the guild to veterans.
Please know that the guild would NEVER ask for money or anything else in this manner. Please delete and I apologize for any inconvenience.

Program News 2020 – 2021

SAT DEC 12 – Since we are meeting virtually I am proposing the following project for our usual holiday get together.
Make an ornament, any medium, and bring it to show at the 12 12 20 meeting. Anyone showing an ornament will receive one “ticket” in a drawing to be done that day.You will get one ticket for each ornament.At the end of the meeting a drawing will be held, there are two chances to win, the prizes are (2) gift cards to Joanns. ($25.00 each). After the meeting you will donate your ornament to a nursing home of your choice and in your area.Please email or call Mary with any questions.

Thank you

Mary
