Sad News

Early this morning, I was informed that Marianne Nowacki’s daughter passed away.  As many of you know, Laura had Batten Disease.  She will be missed.  Our hearts and prayers go out to Marianne.

I will post more information regarding any arrangements as I receive them.

With a Sad Heart,

Cathy H

The current newsletter is now online.

Ann Hockmeyer received the following E-mail:

I would be very appreciative if it is possible to provide information to the Guild, in hopes of locating an experienced Quilter willing to take on this project.
While cleaning out a relative’s home, we discovered a partially made Quilt from beautiful 1930’s fabric – there are not yet enough squares to put the Quilt together, but there is a bag with plenty of the old fabric.
We do have 16 completed 12 inch squares; I am told the pattern is “Dresden Plates” plus 2 larger completed pieces for Pillow covers.
Thank you,

If you are interested, please contact Ann.
