Charity Quilts – Reminder for this Saturday!

In addition to all the fun already on deck for this weekend’s guild meeting, I’ll also be collecting quilts for Anchor House!  I won’t be at next month’s meeting (my due date is the day before our December meeting!), so please bring any you might have this Saturday.   If you won’t be there or want to make other arrangements, just let me know.

Huge thanks to everyone who has made this a great initiative in 2015!!!

Bonnie is looking for RSVPs for a sew day to work on our MQG QuiltCon 2016 Charity Quilt project. The date is Saturday, November 7th in Scottsdale. She needs a headcount though in order to secure the best fitting location. 

Hey everyone! Time is running out to RSVP to help put together the MQG Charity quilt (Improv group effort) on November 7. I need to know how many by Monday to secure a site. Thanks! Bonnie fabrications2B AT
