Coming soon..............

We will begin with bimonthly sew-ins on the 3rd TUESDAYS of the month until further notice. WANTED: iron(s), ironing board(s), cutting mat(s) and of course, men and women wanting to join us in creating quilts for our veterans. One does not need to know how to sew. We have various "opportunities" for you...pressing, cutting, we'll have room for bundling, measuring and making backings, to name a few.  So, bring your sewing machine and tools and sack lunch.   Thank you, Montgomery VFW!

Sew in at the Moose

Another busy day for us in St. Charles. I quit counting the number of tops that got measured, and backings sewn and adhered, number of tops that went out for binding, and 12 completed quilts that came in! Not to mention the great potluck we had. And thank you Marilyn for "mentoring" some new QOV's?? Thank you also to those who volunteered to work the quilt show in a couple weeks. So, now here is our sew-n-share!

 I like what you have done with the panels.  Note:  I have more panels!
