March Meeting, Show & Tell

Camp Quilts
It's that time of year again! We began our annual collection of Camp Quilts at our March 2013 meeting. Please remember that the camp facilities can only accept quilts because yarn and fleece blankets like leaves and twigs a bit too much! During Camp Quilt collection, we will continue to provide quilts, yarn and fleece blankets for distribution to our usual recipient other facilities. Camp quilts need are 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!
