DATE CHANGE FOR QUILT WORK DAY—Saturday, July 27, 9am-12 noon rather than June. It's summer and that means our quilters are gardening, traveling, and even moving! So we need more time to build our supply of completed quilts before having a work session. Our final push for the quilting year will then begin as we get ready for dedication in late September and shipment in early October. Watch the bulletin later in the summer for details. For further information, please see quilting coordinator Terri Siebert. Our supply of printed fabrics is dwindling so donations of fabric, preferably bright and colorful, would be graciously accepted. Most needed is cotton fabric, but any can be used as long as there is no stretch to it. Donations can be left at the Welcome Center by our quilt basket in the narthex or in the storage room off the multipurpose room (place by our quilt shelves). Clean printed sheets (not whites) can be used as long as they are not worn heavily. Garage sales/thrift shops can be a good source. A twin sheet is the perfect size for our backings.
