Fabric Donation

In fall 2014, one of our members asked our guild if we would be willing to raid our stashes, and donate some fabric for the sewing class she teaches at the Lawrence Boys and Girls Club. Guild members were very generous; the donations filled six large boxes. This enabled the kids to create their own pillowcases, two lap-sized quilts for the annual club auction, and aprons for Mothers Day.

The kids were appreciative, and sent a thank you card, which they created and signed with comments.

Below is a thank you note we received from the Cooley Dickinson Hospital Critical Care Unit:
