Christmas Cheer Teddy Bear Quilts

November is Teddy Bear Quilt month.  Don’t forget to bring your bears (stuff animals) and their quilts, pillowcases or bags to the meeting.  Remember to cut price tags off but you can leave other tags on since this shows that the stuffed animal is new. Wrap your bear up in its quilt and tie it will a ribbon. The committee has lots of ribbon if you don’t have any. No pins please. No labels on the quilts as these are from Santa. For more details about this and other Community Service Projects click here.

To the committee members: please be at the CLE Cardinal Room at 11am on Friday November 25 to put the bears up for display and remember to wear a white t-shirt or sweater that day.

 Comfort Quilts

There were 11 new comfort quilts collected at the October meeting and 18 quilts collected in September. The Comfort Quilt Committee members will be invited to meet after the November meeting to decide on distribution of the quilts within the community. Quilts collected after the November meeting may be kept for display at the Quilt Show in April. The quilts were a big hit with visitors at the last show.  To read more about our Comfort Quilts and other community projects click here.
