Charity Sew Days are Fun Days Come Join in on the Fun!!

With batting supplied by CAMACO together with various fabric donations, we almost have a quilt.  All we need now are talents, energy and a bit (not a lot) of time from our devoted quilters. 

The quilts can be sewn at the Millman Center or worked on at home. The aim is to let a child in the CASA, Christ Child or the VFW programs know that we truly care. 

The combination of cutting batting, sorting fabric, sewing, Swedish coffee cake, iced tea and lots of conversation made for a nice day. Enjoy the summer....We waited long enough... 

Truly, Margareta

We were so fortunate to have  Terry Kramzar spend the day teaching us some new techniques and a project to practice and use them. The workshop was held at Cold Spring Village. What a fun day of sewing and friendship.
