Linda's husband, Alan, is the editor and researcher of our newsletter. He has been busy helping others with Hurricane Florence and Michael which has delayed him from doing a timely newsletter. He will have a special edition documenting his travels. Thank you for stopping by.

Each day a child is fighting for their life.
Each day a someone is fighting the evils of cancer.
Each day a homeless is trying to stay warm,
Each day a Combat Veteran is struggling with haunting memories.
Each day thousands of piecers and quilters sew to make that one special quilt for a child, cancer patient, homeless, veteran or frient, to comfort. Many Guilds have trouble getting enough volunteers to help ease the difficulties others may be having.
Thanks to those that give their valuable time to help their guild with their special giving projects.
If you are not helping, try it one time. You will be amazed how your heart will beat with joy.
