July & August News


Happy Summer! It looks like we are in for a pretty warm spell over the next couple of weeks.

First we want to congratulate the winners!
       MaryAnne Melmoth was the $25 gift certificate winner for the 2nd quarter Punch Card Drawing
       Lois Moore, Karen Flatbush, and Misty Bowman were the winners of the Red, White & Blue Block Challenge. The blocks that we had turned in were awesome as always and these lucky ladies will have some very nice quilts when they get them made. We had 40 blocks turned in, so Karen & Misty each got 13 blocks and Lois got 14.
Thanks to all of you who participated. We will have another challenge later this year.
