Tuesday Sewing

Hanover County Parks & Recreation has given us the use of our building on the 4th Tuesday of each month - that's June 24th - hope you can come.

It's a great time to use the big tables to baste a quilt together, or to do some cutting or sewing. We have two irons/ironing boards, cutting mats, so you don't need to bring those. 

We meet at 9 a.m., and sew and visit until sometime in the afternoon.  You can bring your lunch - there's a refrigerator and micro, or get lunch from nearby Subway or Domino's. 

Hope some of our newer members will come by to visit so we can get to know you better. 

The room is always nice and cool which is great on these hot summer days.

Sewing this Friday, June 13, but the building is not available to us on Saturday, June 14.

So pack up your sewing stuff and come sew from 9 a.m. - until 3 or 4 p.m. Bring your lunch or go to Subway or Domino's which are nearby.

I plan to spend my time sewing labels onto Veterans quilts - If you have one that needs a label please bring it and I'll add the label. The labels will then be kept in our top sewing cabinet - help yourself.

ALSO:  If you haven't made your BINGO block for our meeting next Tuesday, you still have plenty of time.  Our program will be playing Bingo for prizes and the bingo blocks will be used to make Veteran quilts. Remember to bring buttons, coins, pins, M&Ms or whatever you like for covering your spaces.  Here are the directions:

Congratulations to Terri and Annie!

Three of our members participated in the quilt contest at Sew Refreshing to benefit Iris Jacobs. Voting was done by donation. The winners were:

First Place - Terri Cooper (Terri and her Mom, Carole, are among our newest members.)

Third Place - Annie Miksch (Annie is our member from Washington State who makes several veterans quilts for us each year.)

The event raised over $2200 for the Jacobs family. Well done Country School Quilters!
