Sew-in Reminder - Feb 7

Tuesday, Feb 7
10 AM - ??
Prairie Shop Quilts, 1911 W Wilson St., Batavia
We meet again next Tuesday for our monthly sew-in. I might be a bit late but we'll have kits again for the shadowbox pattern and steps to Valor.

Bring your calendars as I'm looking for help working the booth at the Sewing Expo (March 22-24). We'll be obtaining donations with the signature block and I have kits made up for blocks for the walk-in-sew-in they will have set up in the booth. So, let me know if you'll be able to help.

We sent 27 quilts to the 527th MP CO out of Hohenfels and Ansbach, Germany; haven't got the exact count from the RWW Program this weekend, and 16 quilts to Decatur, IL to returning troop for this Sunday's ceremony. The need is tremendous. One quilt at a time, right! Our next commitment to Great Lakes is 65 for the April 20th weekend. Rock Falls is requesting approximately 10 a week as well.

Have almost 40 pieced tops waiting to be quilted. Of course that'll mean a whole lot of binding!
PS...OHHH, forgot to mention. Vicki, from Rockford/Beloit, is coming tomorrow. Anyone having scraps for Alberta, call me and drop them off if you'd like.
