Community Quilts update

Seven members quilted CQ sandwiches and are eligible for one of three prizes in the Jan draw. Thanks to Judy Beca, Helen Whitney, Sandra Pearce, Erica Rao & Kathy Schofield.
From their own stash, Helen Fujiki, Fran Auty, Joan Lester, Valerie Prideaux, Irene Dewar and Ana Gandolfi and a quilt top from Mary Lou Curry.

To all of you a big thank you on behalf of the recipients as described by Debbie Hill-Corrigan of Sojourn House. Following Debbie’s description of the plight of the women and their families, members stepped up to take home all of the available quilt sandwiches. If you missed the opportunity to pick up one of these sandwiches, never fear…..CQ will have many at the Nov. meeting.

Fabric and Kit sales were brisk as well as the distribution of CQ kits for more comfort quilt tops.

An auction quilt was given to the Helping Hand Charity that is part of the outreach programme at Amica at Thornhill, Mature Lifestyles. A $430 fundraising through a raffle of the quilt was the result. The attached photo shows the happy winner flanked by two Amica employees.Quilt Winners
