Decisions will be made as to how often we meet and or sew, who is willing to make a whole quilt, piece only , quilt – long armers needed, bind, what kind of labels we use, sew labels on, write thank you cards, whether we make bags/pillowcases to store quilt, each person willing make certain blocks to put together in a quilt, make kits, help with awarding the quilts, and anything else we need to decide in order to honor as many of our veterans as possible. As you can see there are a multitude of opportunities to assist us in how we go about this worthwhile charity project.
Dear Sew Friends,
During the August meeting, Cuddle Quilts took in 20 completed quilts and 6 quilt tops. I’ll get the 6 quilt tops kitted up so we can get those completed. During our straight stitch quilting clinic that was held in conjunction with the Sew Joyful Bee completed 11 quilted quilts. Six people attended the Cuddle Quilt Bee on August 16th.
The Next Cuddle Quilt Bee is September 20th from 10 am to 3 pm. We meet at First Baptist Church in Tyler, 301 W. Ferguson Street. You would enter through Door #4, go down the hall, and take the elevator to the 4th floor. Come join the fun in the craft room! Bring your sewing machine, and regular sewing notions. We have cutting mats, rulers, irons and ironing board.
