Ronald Mc Donald House in Danville trip to give them our RMD quilts we have made the last two years for all children in the RMD house. The guild members also sewed pillowcases and placemats to be used in the house.
The May meeting was a comedy routine with quilt slow information sprinkled in by our speaker, Mark Lipinski. We laughed our way through his quilt journey. His message; slow down, enjoy your quilting, find new pleasure in challenging yourself with new techniques and reawaken your passion for quilting. A wonderful way to end a fantastic two years! Thank you to our Executive Board for doing just that, reawakening our passion for quilting.

Fabricpalozza!! The Measure and Mark Party to jump start the measuring for the Recycle Room at the quilt show was quite a success. We had 23 ladies, 3 of the new members, and 2 guys come in and work very hard. Over 100 hours of time was spent during the 3 weeks. See you in February for more Measure and Mark fun. Great job! Thank you all! We will be accepting more fabric at each meeting. Time to clean out your stash ladies. Some pictures of the boxes full of measured fabric.
