Christmas Cheer Teddy Bear Quilts
There has been some discussion lately among guild members about our Christmas cheer teddy bears so I want to clarify things. We spoke to someone on the Christmas cheer committee and she filled us in. Teddy Bears don’t have to be specifically teddy bears, they can be rabbits, cats, dogs, or any stuffed animal. Dolls are also acceptable because hard dolls can be given to older children and soft ones to the younger ones.
November is Teddy Bear Quilt month. No labels on the quilts as these are from Santa. For more details about this and other Community Service Projects click here.
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.
