Greetings quilting friends. It was great to see so many familiar faces at our May meeting. Thank you to those who dropped off items and checks for HAVEN. I know they will be greatly appreciated. I hope to see more in the future as the need never goes away. I know many have contributed online and acknowledged that it was from members of our guild and I thank all of you, too. I look forward to seeing folks at our final meeting as we wrap up this year. It’s so simple. Just click the link
