.... and now a word from ...

from Gen Henderson . . . FLOOD VICTIMS
I have an unusual request. I'm sure you've heard about the awful flood in Minot, ND. I used to live there and consider it home. They are in need of quilts for the shelters. [I am] requesting that anyone with spare quilts that they would be willing to donate, do so. I'll pick them up and ship at my expense.
If anyone wants to mail directly the address is:
Red Cross
PO box 456
Minot, ND 58701

from Lori Covert . . . ART CLUB
Hi Everyone,
As you all remember, Joan has volunteered to show us how to color fabric with Sharpie (or any type of permanent markers) and rubbing alcohol. The fun happens this Thursday - 6/30 from 6-8 pm.

Joan tells me this can be a bit smelly, so we may want to go outside or upstairs and open the windows....

Everyone needs to bring:
something to protect your clothing, or old shirt
fabric... light colored and/or white
gloves, if you prefer
piece of freezer paper or al. foil (the shop has freezer paper)
sharpie markers, broad tip is great but any will work. Joan will be bringing several colors for all to use, too.
Optional: lace, ribbon, eyedropper

Joan will be bringing to share:
rubbing alcohol, sharpies in assorted colors, and miscellaneous items needed
a drop cloth in case we go outside

See you Thursday!


Fit to Frame: Set Nine by Lori Smith includes four adorable little quilts and the kit that is available includes enough fat eighths for all four quilts. The instructions are clear and easy-to-follow, with rotary cutting and machine piecing directions. Also included are suggestions on how to inexpensively frame your finished quilt!

If you purchase the Mini Wedding Ring kit, the pattern is included! You will really enjoying making this little quilt - it uses Thangles.  :-)  (Sorry for the bad picture - you really need to stop in to see this little quilt that Joyce put together - it's darling!)

We now have two great cookbooks! Yes, I said cookbooks. Honest. Just the cover on the one from the midwest makes me want to buy it! Published by Quail Ridge Press, The Cookbook Ladies (Gwen McKee and Barbara Mosley) are on their fifth volume of their regional series. The Midwest book features more than 400 of the most exceptional recipes available from iowa, Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio. You will even find history and trivia about the region scattered throughout the book.

The Ohio book featuers over 300 recipes from 54 of the state's most popular cookbooks, with descriptions and ordering information for all contributing cookbooks. This book is the latest volume in the acclaimed Best of the Best State Cookbook Series that has sold over two million copies!

Stop in and say Hello!
