Don’t faint, I’m still a member of our guild!!! At the meeting in November, I’d like to have a workshop of ALL and ANY members willing to help create kits for the Home of the Brave.
Starting at 10 and bring a lunch or come later and bring dinner – it’s all day and any time you’d like to come!
Please bring a cutting mat, ruler and cutter. Some may want to bring their sewing machines. I’ll have an iron and board (a second one would be helpful) and all the material that I have collected to be able to make triangle backings for the nine-patch on point, the detail strips and borders.
I HOPE alot of you will be able to attend. I have gotten the number of soldiers’s families/spouses to be found down to 50!! If we all pitch in, we can get that number even lower!!!
I know I haven’t been around to meetings, but I have NEVER stopped working on HOME OF THE BRAVE.
Thanks for your help Lindy,
Home of the Brave

We have received a wonderful gift from Sandy Leppart, a quilter in Grafton who is cleaning out her parents house. There is enough cotton (on the left) for lots of baby quilts and there is flannel and a bunch of misc fabrics (on the right) for pjs and possibly donating to the prison. All the fabrics have been delivered to Teri for distribution as necessary. She told me that she has batting that she will also donate when she finds it.
Just found this article, some of you use Frixion pens for marking on quilts and might find the information useful.
Lindy, will you please forward this Barbara Brackman blog article? Thank you.
Vicki Morris suggested the idea of doing redwork (red floss on white background) embroidery for the Red and White Quilt Challenge for the Christmas and Summer Potlucks to display in our quilt show next fall–what a terrific idea–and here’s an example I thought might interest people:
Gentleman is selling his late wife’s quilting and sewing supplies.
He has an Accuquilt machine with nine dyes and three mats. Many are new. He is selling these as a package. Also has fabric from overseas trips.
Saturday, October 3rd. 10am – 4pm
5194 Colorado Ave, Sheffield
3 doors down from the Backpacker shop
If you have contacts with other guilds, please share this with them.
Just in case you still need this for fair entries. Deadline is tomorrow!!!!
