Thank you, Yorkville

We have added another monthly sew in!   We will be in Yorkville (Sewing, Etc) on the third Tuesday of every month.

I counted over a dozen who showed up ready to sew yesterday.  I brought along the strips and we have some really nice quilt tops started---looking forward to seeing the completed tops and some worked and took kits.  Kelly, the owner, just couldn't do enough for us...Thank you so much Kelly for the hospitality and generosity.

We were honored  with the presence of two veterans.  Love how the wives got them to get there!!  In walked Shawn with his wife with the assumption he was measuring a wall.  The smiles we saw after he got his quilt is priceless.  While Shawn was receiving his quilt, in walked Richard (who with his wife and son drove about an hour to get there).  He turned to his wife and knew she had "fibbed" a bit as to why they were there.  QOV brought together two vets who after the presentation were able to share amongst themselves.  Just can't get enough of presenting quilts and I think it was a nice experience to our new sewing group!
