Fall/Winter Charity Event

As the weather cools and we spend more time indoors,
do you think you could whip up a pillowcase or two for a good cause? 

For our Fall/Winter Charity Event we've decided to participate in the

We've set ourselves a lofty goal of 150 pillowcases by February 2012.
I donated to the One Million Pillowcase Challenge. Make a pillowcase, make a difference. Join quilters from around the nation today by making a pillowcase and donating it to charity. Click here to learn more.

Westminster Fabric has made a generous donation to our guild's effort that allowed us to make over 60 pillow case kits available to our members.  50 kits were snatched up at the November meeting; thank you!!!We'll bring the remaining kits and hopefully a few more to the December meeting!

Michael Miller has made an amazing donation of wonderful modern fabrics!  We've made over 40 pillow case kits with fabrics such as Sarah Jane Children at Play and Violet Craft's Peacock Lane!  These new kits will be available at the December meeting!

As always, our deepest thanks for your support of our charity events!
