LARNED — On June 2, members of the guild finalized plans for the Quilting Celebration scheduled for Saturday, June 13, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. in the fellowship hall (use NW back door) at the First Presbyterian Church, 8th and Morris.
Members are asked to bring a large dish to share for the potluck, snacks for coffee breaks, the turkey block and quilts for display, and items for the Peddler’s Corner. Many door prizes will be given and the free event is open to the general public. Ann Hicks announced the dedication of the community quilt at Jordaan Library for the 100th anniversary on June 12 at 9:30 a.m.

The final call for receiving blankets for Dr. Okey for his trip to Africa will bring the total to the goal of 100. Thank you to Melvina Prescott for making 15 blankets in the last month. Anyone interested in bringing the quilting scrapbook up to date, contact Ann Hicks. Hicks distributed the first assignment for “A Cat Fright Sight” quilt challenge block.
