MARCH 13TH Meeting was followed by an SSQ Community Affairs Sew-In at the American Lutheran Church. Many of our members were there to help the Guild make and finish quilts to be given to St. Mary’s Hospital cancer patients. The goals of our community affairs committee reflect our love of quilting and give comfort to those who need an extra “Hug” during stressful times. Please note that our reserve supply for these quilts is very low. Extra hands are always welcome and appreciated.
Our Community Affairs Committee has been busy sorting and cutting block pieces, BUT they need your help. This “Sew-In” is dedicated to creating this special block. When a block is completed, the blocks will be assembled into several community affairs project quilts.
WOW! Look at all of our wonderful members who came to help us make these quilt projects come together.
SOME OF THE RESULTS OF YOUR EFFORTS WERE PRESENTED TO THE COMMUNITY AFFAIRS COMMITTEE IN THE APRIL MEETING.
We hope that you were able to view the news story that Dave Allgood, from Western Slope Now, aired after visiting us at our SEW-In. Here is the link for you. Thank You Dave!
Our Community Affairs committee is also in need of volunteers to sew these quilts and even more of you that like to do bindings. (Sunset Slope Quilters provides the batting and backing and binding to you.)
With many hands to help, we all enjoyed sharing the day with old and new friends. Thank you all for helping after our March meeting.
