In May we were asked to make seven small Welcome wall hangings for Habitat for Humanity. As of the July meeting we have four quilts that are being made and we need three more (7 in total).
If there is anyone that is interested in making one, please let Sam Bergstrom know. If you would like to make one please let her know, since we need to have these completed by August. Sam’s contact info is in the directory or fill out the Contact Us form on the website.
