September Workshop Cancelled

We are cancelling our workshop for Saturday, September 21st. There is a big event at the church and it got bigger so they need our room. We may try and get the room for the 28th if people can make it out on the day (please, let me know) otherwise we will meet again next month.
Thanks for understanding!

Christmas Projects!

We are planning on distributing quilts to the Walk the Walk Foundation for their Walk of Christmas Drive in December. Walk the Walk Foundation has teamed up with Anne Arundel County's Holiday Sharing Program who receive names of children from the Department of Social Services.  We would love to have lap size quilts for children and teens for this event! We will be making up quilt kits next week!! If you would like a kit please let us know or join our next workshop.

We also have a goal of 50 quilted tote bags by December for the Northern Virginia Nursing Students.  We handed out about 12 kits at the Annapolis Quilt Guild meeting the beginning of the month and hope to hand out more next month.

Delivery and Next Workshop!

We delivered 16 kids quilts and 4 pillowcases to the Chrysalis House near Annapolis yesterday. I met one of the Day Care Coordinators who was excited to receive the quilts. Praying these items will comfort a child in need of a hug (and their mothers too)!!  Chrysalis House is a drug and alcohol treatment center for women and their children.

Next Workshop is Saturday, September 21st from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm at BACC, room 223.  We will be making Christmas preemie quilts and continue to make bags for the nursing students in Virginia.  We found a new pattern to make drawstring tote bags for boys. Kits will be provided for bags and quilts. Please bring your sewing machine, supplies and a lunch.  All skill levels are welcome!  Instructions to make quilts and bags are always warmly provided.  Hope to see you there!
