First of all a belated thank you to the law office of Fonvielle, Lewis, Foote & Messer for the gift of quilt batting. It was a very generous gift and will help us continue our mission of providing quilts to local kids in need.
Our next play days are March 5th and March 19th, 2016 from 9 – 3 with lunch around 11:30 am. We’ll continue our work on weighted therapy blankets at:
Play Big Therapy & Play Center
4500 W Shannon Lakes
(Off Thomasville, then Velda Dairy Road. Turn right on Shannon Lakes and then turn into the shopping center on the right.)
Please look for the suite directly opposite the marquee at the entrance and Judy’s silver SUV.
If you’re coming to either of our next meetings, please let Judy know. 850-274-4699.
We’ll also have regular kid’s quilt kits (not for the weighted blankets) available to be picked up and/or you can drop off any finished quilts here as well. Thanks so much for all you do!
On Thursday, March 10 Sew for Hope Kids will have a table at the Quilter’s Unlimited Guild Meeting. Between 6 – 6:45 p.m. you can drop off finished quilts or pick up kits to work on at home.
Hope Community Kids are still in need of twin and crib size blankets. Summer is around the corner which makes light-weight blankets much appreciated. If you’d like to make novelty blankets that are one layer of cotton novelty fabric and one layer of solid flannel stitched together with no batting or quilting, they would be most welcome. A good size would be 2 yards long by the width of fabric (with selvedge edges removed). And of course launder the fabric before beginning to remove the sizing and pre-shrink the flannel.
Thanks for all you do,
