Super Saturday! (Will you be there?)

The CiJ is the 2nd class to the Embellished Stockings series
(last week's was a raging success!)

The Quilts of Valor event is where you bring any orphan blocks, 100% cotton fabric or scraps (any color or design but juvenille), & UFO's to sew and donate to our war-wounded veterans for their hard work and sacrifice to keep us free! Bring your machines and a treat to share! (unless you don't want to...there're places you can buy food nearby) Bring tops or complete quilts you have just lying around to donate. Come have fun and say thanks to the troops by making quilts for them to aid in their healing!! We will have some supplies ready to construct blocks, quilt tops, pillowcases, and backs.

They have given 178 so far this year!!!

Please RSVP to Barbara Winkler as space is limited
