January 3rd, 2017...Sewing/Cutting and "bundling" Day

at the Moose, St. Charles!
Hope your Christmas, Hanukkah was most enjoyable, and that you bring in the New Year all rested and ready to go! We will start at 9:30 and can go until ??? So, we need to prepare for our National Sewing Day.
IF you have a kit that you need to finish before getting a new kit (as I have 2 that I need to finish in order to get a new kit), you can go ahead and bring in your sewing machine and work on that/those.

Batting Station:  we have about a dozen tops needing batting, We tape our batting scraps, measure and make up the bundles to get to our machine quilters.  So, bring maybe a measuring tape, scissors and if you can bring in an iron/ironing board, please do.

Cutting Station:  Caron has come up with two patterns for Nat'l Sewing Day.  Plan is to cut and if time, make up the kits.  So, supplies needed are:  rotary cutter, rulers, scissors (or cutting machines if you wish) and if you have an extra mat and bed risers to raise the tables to save our backs???

I did say rest up, right.  OH, and we are expecting visiting guests.  So, 2017 is off to a good start I hope. 
PS.  Joyce is ready to take your plastic bags again.

Announcing QOVF Annual Sewing Day info...February 4, 2017

The date is set, we are getting kits ready now. Will you be joining us for the Annual Quilts of Valor Sew-in on February 4, Moose Lodge in St Charles? If you are like me now, I can't come to the monthly sew-ins so this is the LEAST I can do!! This is year 4 that I am involved and I am always amazed how much we achieve when we work together. Please RSVP so we know how many kits to plan. Last year we had 28 give or take. Can we top that? Oh, and if you can bring a little something for the food table that would be great!!! Bring a friend and even if they don't sew we can find something for them to do!!! Look forward to seeing you there!!  Caron Carlson

You can now start registering at the QOVF web page. They will be having drawings for prizes that day. We also have another location. Sugar Grove at the Firehouse. Elizabeth Ivins will lead the group. As soon as I get more details, I'll also set up an event so if kits and or fabric is needed, there will be enough.
Montgomery, I need to know if there is interest for the VFW so I can inquire if they can have us. Email me, call me, let me know. Otherwise you are welcome at the other locations.
