We are a busy bunch of quilters that strive to provide quilts as our small and humble way of saying "thanks" to our returning troops. Rita Pennington (firstname.lastname@example.org) is our "Drill Sergeant" and she keeps the (quilting) troops moving and motivated. We have 7 monthly sew-ins: St. Charles, Elgin, Rolling Meadows, Arlington Heights, Crest Hill, Geneva and Montgomery. See side bar for more info.

Thank a Veteran each and every day

June 6, Sew In
Reminder Notice...Moose Lodge, St. Charles, Tuesday, June 6, 9:30-???
Remember to bring in the cuttings. If you are not going to be there tomorrow, email me with your count so I can get these done prior to our Chicago event. We won't be having a sew-in in
July. Big possibility that Leslie won't be there this month but I'm to
remind you: " If you are going to remind people about scraps, please
tell them I do NOT collect scraps except for those generated at our QOV
gathering. If they have their own scraps they must make a dog bed out of
them and if they bring that In August I will get it to Anderson Animal
Shelter. I can also bring fabric to make bed cases in August if they
don't have any."
If you need a kit from me, please email me this morning as I am packing the car.
A HUGE thank you to Mary Ellen Middleton for the generous fabric donation yesterday. See you all Tuesday!
