June 2013 Meeting, Show & Tell

Camp Quilts
Huge thanks goes to all volunteers for providing quilts for summer camps! The need to provide comfort for children with handmade blankets continues throughout the year and we thank you for your extra effort for this special project.

Annual Challenge
Join us for the 9th Annual Linus Connection Challenge! All volunteers are invited to participate. Challenge packs will be available for sign out after Show & Tell at the June - September meetings.  Challenge blankets will be on display at the Annual Birthday Celebration in October. Challenge blankets should follow the usual blanket making guidelines, available here.

See previous year's Challenge/Birthday Celebrations for more information.
