QUILTS FOR WOUNDED WARRIORS: The So. Bay Quilt Guild has received a request for 100 quilts to provide comfort for our troops in combat hospitals in Afghanistan. The quilts have provided great comfort to the wounded and show them there are people at home who care. They need help to meet this goal. Any help would be appreciated. The requested finished size to fit gurneys is 48” x 78”. Patriotic fabrics (preferred theme), blocks, completed tops or quilts may be dropped of at Cotton & Chocolate or given to Robyn Hazzard or Monica Sayre.
All memberships must be renewed by July 1, 2015. Membership renewal has already begun and continues through the end of June. A big thank you to guild members who renewed at the April meeting. Membership is still only $30 per year. Please submit a completed renewal form.
