Charity sewing day!

Today we had an awesome and productive day! Several guild members volunteered their Sundays to sew up baby quilt tops for The Center for Great Expectations.

From left to right: Carol, Helen, Kathleen, Beth, Elaine, Krishma, Susan, Neva, me, Laura, and Robin. Lori was also there and took the picture! Krishma, our philanthropy chair, already finished 7 quilts (!) on her own, and Jess Levitt finished one - great job, ladies and thank you everyone so much for your time, fabric, and expertise! A special thanks to Krishma, Susan, Elaine, and Robin who sorted through, cut, and put together kits of donated fabric. This was only possible because of you!

Robin painstakingly embroidered these labels - aren't they perfect? Thanks Robin!

We will soon message all guild members about the next step in the process. We look forward to donating 20 quilts in November (before winter) so we will need volunteers to quilt and bind the remaining quilts.

In the meantime, here are some action shots. We love sewing at the Hopewell Train Station - the space is perfect, people from town pop in, and we can walk to lunch!
