February Montgomery Sew In

At the sew in today, we had the honor to award two veterans: Gerald M, Navy; and Anthony D, USMCR. Thank you gentlemen for your service and your stories!

Until I can figure out how to load pictures from my iPad ..will not let me sign in, I'll load pictures.  You will find them on our Facebook page though...Illinois Quilts of Valor.

As I mentioned yesterday, we have committed to a group of 52 for May.  Yesterday we bundled quite a few tops, so quilters, if you have some time, let me know!  It's got me back to my machine quilting.  Also, we will have a booth at the International Quilt Show at the Rosemont in April.  Dates are April 12-14 at the Donald Stephens Convention Center, 5555 S River Rd., Rosemont, IL  If you can work the booth, let me know so I can put your name for a badge to get into the show.

update on sew-in

I know we have a scheduled sew in tomorrow. I am watching the weather. I can post early in the morning if you wish. Of course if you're not be the judge. I know we're expecting a couple veterans..and they were excited about it, but safety first. So stay tuned.

Update:  I will be at the sew-in today.  Streets were ok.  We didn't get as much snow as they predicted.  Drive carefully...always. OH...****bring your own lunch***  They will not have lunch as in the past.

I'll be bringing along some cutting and kitting. Have been packing many kits. Don't forget your power strips, rotary cutters, rulers..maybe a small pressing mat..  ohh, and a dish to pass for our potluck!  AND we have a few "special guests" that we will be attending to around 10:30.

See you soon
