Call for location suggestions for 40th Anniversary Celebration

Do you have any suggestions as to where the celebration for the 40th Anniversary might be held?

Date of celebration: Tuesday, June 13, 2023. 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. (exact times subject to change)

There are several things that need to be taken into consideration.

·        Large enough to have a significant display of the challenge quilts as well as quilts from the 1980s and other memorabilia.

·        Tables for food set up as well as dining at. We would like to think we would have between 40 and 50 participants.

·        Easy accessibility. We would like to invite our founding members.

·        Adequate parking.

·        Reasonable cost.

All suggestions are welcome along with contact information. Please email Suzanne Kerlin

Comfort Covers and CPQG

 Comfort Covers is an organization that was started 23 years ago. Over the almost quarter of a century, Comfort Covers has distributed about 15,000 covers to north central Pennsylvania. They are called covers because quilts, knit and crocheted afghans, fleece blankets, flannel receiving blankets, and more are welcomed. The mission was to give every child in hospital a quilt or cover to take home and to give every quilt and blanket maker a place to send their covers. That’s still a mission we can identify with. 

Mary Watson has been the leader, but she is ready to retire. CPQG has been asked to take over collecting and distributing the covers. There is a robust system in place to deliver quilts and blankets to Lewistown Hospital, Penn Highlands in Huntingdon, Miners’ Hospital in Hastings, The Meadows in Centre Hall, and several other places.

We will be discussing the future of Comfort Covers at our October evening meeting.

UFO Friday cancelled for Oct 14

 Due to unforeseen circumstances, we must cancel this week's sewing at the Blue Course Church.  We hope to see you next week.
