A note from Margareta and the Charity Committee:

Thank you for donated fabric and Interest in our Charity program. At this time we do not need any more fabric for quilts, as we have enough "kits" and most of us want to use our own material. 

Fabric is needed for the Dog/cat pillows.

On September 22 between 1:00 and 4:00, we will gather for the final time at the Millman Center to make dog/cat pillow covers. We will also discuss how we will make our presentation of quilts to CASA. 

We are way short of last years donated quilts. So please see what you can do between now and our Thanksgiving meeting. If each one of us at CAMACO made one, yes (1) quilt we could spread a lot of happiness.

Stay well, happy and sewing....Margareta
