Help support the Cherry Valley Library where they donate the room for quilters to do SPAM related projects. On Feb. 27th and 28th there will be a silent auction and mini-golf for all ages. Do you have any quilting items you would like to donate to add to the baskets they are making? Please bring them to the Feb. 4th Guild meeting and give to Barb Lange or Pam Surmo, or I would be glad to pick them up.

Thank you and Happy Quilting!

My little maroon and white embroidered quilt disappeared at the afternoon meeting. It was on the Show and Tell table or the table I was sitting at and when Show and Tell came up I couldn’t find it. It was not for sale, the show and tell quilts were close to the free merchandise. Maybe someone thought it was for sale and just gave me the money and didn’t tell me what it was for. I just bought that little quilt at the estate sale that the fabric and books came from and it had a D embroidered in the center block. I love that little quilt and would like to get it back.

I am pleased to tell you that the custom quilt designed and created by Sinnissippi Quilters sold for $1,400 at the Signature Chefs Auction held last Thursday, November 12 at Giovanni’s. We are so grateful for the time and effort put into the quilt, it was absolutely beautiful and it created quite a bidding war at the live auction. We appreciate your generosity as the funds raised from the sale of the quilt go toward supporting the mission of the March of Dimes. Thank you again, we sincerely appreciate it!
