​​Update!

Cuddle Quilts Goes Straight!
 
Straight stitching, that is. Thanks to all your hard work and generosity,Cuddle Quilts now has a LOT of quilt tops that need to be quilted. (At last count it was 38!) We have pulled out the larger and/or more complicated tops for our wonderful long-armers to hopefully quilt.
 
But we need YOUR HELP to quilt the rest of them. So Cuddle Quilts is hosting a Straight Stitch Quilting Day on Wednesday July 20th from 10:00 to 3:00. We will meet at Pollard Methodist Church on New Copeland Rd in the Craft Room, which is where the Sew Joyful Bee is held. We invite you all to bring your sewing machine and walking foot and help us get these quilts finished.
 
Anyone can straight quilt a quilt, you don’t have to have any special knowledge or skills. We will be sewing several different straight designs including cross hatching, stitch in the ditch, and more modern multi-directional designs. If you want to learn how to layer your quilt sandwich, pin baste it, and mark it, we will happily show you how. Or you can bring a Cuddle Quilt already basted and marked and stitch it there with us.
 
We can fit about 20 people in the room, so we hope many of you will volunteer. Please bring your sewing machine and walking foot, several different colors of thread and bobbins, and curved safety pins, clips, and tape if you have them. It will be a fun and productive day and we can get so many quilts finished!
 
Just reply to this email to sign up to volunteer, and contact either Maresa or Lisa if you have any more questions.
 
Sincerely,
Maresa Campbell (903) 581-7557
