March 2011 Monthly Meeting Updates and Show & Tell

Camp Quilts
We are collecting camp quilts again!  Please remember that the camp facilities can only accept quilts.  Yarn and fleece blankets like leaves and twigs a bit too much for distribution at camp! Camp quilts need to be made in larger sizes for school-aged children, ages 7 - 17.  Thank you to everyone that donates every month and for helping to make camp quilt donations possible!

Each month, The Linus Connection offers a free short demonstration to our members. If you have a technique or pattern you'd like to share or you have a question about presenting a demo, please contact Jennifer. We're currently scheduling demos for April, May and June, but if you'd like a later date, we're happy to add you to the demo calendar!

Patterns Online
Thanks to your suggestions, we are constantly adding to our list of online resources. You can find lots of free patterns, ideas and helpful hints linked right from the Linus websiteBoxy Stars was a favorite this month. You can find that and many more free patterns at Quiltville, Bonnie Hunter's website.

Show And Tell; Demo
Blankets were shown and donated on March 19, 2011. They are not necessarily being shown by the person that made them. We encourage you to join us at our monthly meeting and participate in Show and Tell at 10 a.m.   A free demo follows.
