What an awesome work day yesterday. Thanks so much to Kathy Garringer and helper Carolyn Gaskill for organizing a great day. Almost 30 people were there to help work on quilts of all sizes for babies and kids of all ages. Check out the details on our Communitypage.
Is everybody staying cool??!! Get out of the heat and come enjoy this month’s program at Q.U.I.L.T. Make sure that you set your calendar for this Thursday, July 28th at 7:00, at the Springdale Holiday Inn. It’s sure to be a great program. Also, if you have some time on Friday, contact Therese Ramsey to sign up for this month’s workshop on “Grandma Addie’s Star”. If you need details, see the workshop page. It is certainly a busy week… because on Saturday, July 30th we will be having our Baby Quilt Workshop from 9:00-6:00 at Ozarks Electric in Fayetteville. Hope you all can come! Maybe we can set a record for the number of baby quilts finished in one day!
The Northwest Arkansas Women’s Shelter is having an Art Auction later this fall, in November.
