June is the traditional month of our guild social, and we had a great time chatting and visiting last week.

Hi Bob!

#QuiltsforPulse Charity Drive

We share in the collective grief for all of the victims and survivors of the mass shooting at Pulse in Orlando. In conjunction with the Orlando Modern Quilt Guild and the National Modern Quilt Guild, we are participating in a quilt drive.

We are asking our members to make blocks following the Love Wins pattern by What the Bobbin.

Members need to have blocks to Maria A. by July 21; we will be receiving more info via email, meetings, and our Facebook group.

If you would like to participate individually, the Modern Quilt Guild has info for you on their website.

Quilters know that sewing and quilting is an act of love and a gift of comfort to the recipients, and has been so for hundreds of years. Let's show our love and support those who are suffering now. <3
