May 2019 – Thanks to all who sewed bags for Hopes’ Door. We delivered another 16 bags to a group that will fill them with much needed toiletries. I will have several quilt kits-the tops, backs and batting- ready for someone to quilt them. I also will have more bags and pillowcases ready to sew. Please remember to finish and bring back what you checked out last month.

Over the past year, guild members created “red dress” blocks for a quilt to be donated to the American Heart Association. Sindy Rodenmayer of Fat Cat Patterns generously allowed us to use her pattern.
On Friday, February 23rd, The American Heart Association Go Red Campaign held their luncheon/ auction. Our quilt was auctioned off for $475. Thanks to all who contributed!
