Quilts Needed for the Rockford Rescue Mission

Quilts for the Rockford Rescue Mission are needed once again. Many quilts have been completed and are on beds. However, the supply is dwindling. If you have any quilt tops (no batting or backing) that you can donate, they would be appreciated. The recommended size is in the 60″ x 80″ range, large enough to cover a twin bed. Please give to the Special Projects table. Thanks!! ~ Jane Erickson


Quilt Show Boutique Donations

We will be collecting your items for the Boutique this Thursday.  I will be there an hour before each meeting to take the items you have brought for resale at the Boutique.  I will be loading them in my black Honda CRV and will park near the entrance to the church. Thanks for going through your sewing rooms and finding good stuff for us to have in the Boutique. ~ Barb Clucas
