Ditty Bags to Operation Shoebox

 From Claire--

In late October I plan to send out as many Ditty Bags as I can to Operation Shoebox in Florida.  Betty Knouse has made a bunch, and I look forward to receiving more to send.  The pattern for the ditty bag is on the Guild website.  Also, many thanks to all that have also given me the "hotel" toiletries - will gladly accept more. 

If you are able to make more ditty bags, you can leave items on my front porch   (see membership book) -- brick ranch house

If not,  please just email me (or call) and I'll arrange to pick any bags or toiletries to send in October.

Thank you so much for thinking of our service men and women.

2020 Challenge

 Recently, the Sisters OutdoorQuilt Show held their annual show virtually. One of the collections shown was a guild challenge where members were asked to create a “My Town” quilt. When you think of “My Town”, what comes to mind? My town can be somewhere in the Centre region. But it can also be reminiscent of:

-where you grew up

-where you went to college

-where you worked your first job

-your favorite vacation spot

-where you lived when you got married

-the town where your grandparents lived when you visited them at Thanksgiving or in the summer

-the town where your children were born

The list could go on and on. So again, where does your imagination go when you think of “My Town”?

For this challenge there are no requirements other than your piece must have a label on the back (or inside) that references the challenge, what town or area you picked, and why you chose the town or area. Your quilt or quilted item can be pieced or appliqu├ęd, traditional or modern, realistic or abstract, embellished or not!

Hopefully we’ll have a June picnic in 2021 where your creations will be revealed.

Karen powers is our lead on this project.
