Donation Quilts Reminder

Remember these lovely fabric bundles from our June 2016 meeting? The October 2016 CLMQG meeting will be here before you know it, and we have a guild goal to donate 30 comfort quilts to Gavers Breast Care Center in October to mark National Breast Cancer Awareness month :)

If you took one of these donated bundles with the intent to sew a comfort quilt for Gavers please make every effort to complete the quilt and bring it to either the September 11 or October 23 meeting. Don't forget to add a CLMQG label to the back of your quilt. Tax return forms will be available at both meetings for you to fill out and include with your donation quilt.

Thank you so much for your continued support of Gavers!
