Charity  sewing days will be added as they are scheduled. For more information please contact charityquilts@gmail.com

Mystery Weekend – the early stages of planning for the Mystery Weekend are in process. Do we want a repeat? There is a lot go ing on in 2019 with the quilt show and various challenges so we want to make sure there is sufcient interest for Mystery Weekend. There will be signup sheets at the September and October guild meetngs. The format for the weekend will be basically the same as this year’ s event – a preparation evening on Friday evening and sewing i f tme permits, then a full day of sewing on Saturday, with the objective of getting the “mystery” tops completed by end of day on Saturday. A few modifications will be made based on feedback from last year. What is needed at this point would be volunteers to organize the kitchen on Saturday (will not need the kitchen on Friday night), vol unteer runners to assist the groups.  More details to follow. Weekend is being planned for January 25-26, 2019 weekend.

Preferred Sizes for Charity Quilts

For the beneft of the new members who have joined the guild over the past few months, I thought I would take this opportunit y to review the minimum size for the diferent types of quilts that Transiton House needs.

Baby quilts – 37” by 50”

Single bed quilts – 50” by 70”

Double bed quilts – 65” by 75”

Although it is wonderful to receive donatons of completed quilts, we recognize that not everyone can wrestle a large quilt a round on their domestc machine, so we are grateful to have a group of women who will quilt tops that are donated.
