Congrats to our newest Customer of the Month Winners: Christie C., Carol P., Lori R., and Shirley S.! We saw most of you already at the November Block of the Month meeting. They each won a $25 shopping spree during this month and use of the Customer of the Month Parking Spot! On to the news...
Quilts of Valor News
We have an upcoming QOV Presentation at Digby Place (167 W 240 S, Lafayette, IN 47909) on Monday, November 11th. QOV members please arrive by 11 a.m. to help present the quilts to the recipients. We're excited about this meaningful event on Veterans' Day!
We will take a hiatus from our "official" QOV sewing days in November and December. Plan to jumpstart our QOV Sewing for 2020 at the January 15th sew day. Sign-up online or call the store to let us know you're coming please! It's much easier for us to plan staffing when we know how many will come to sew.

Did You Know?
Where do you get your inspiration for your projects? Hopefully at our RQ brick and mortar shop or website you can find some inspiration, but photographs can also inspire your creativity. Along those lines you should see a quilting exhibit at the Wells Center in Lafayette now through November 22nd. Local quilter and photographer Leanne McGiveron presents Ireland Inspired: Interlacing Visual and Textile Arts. Her Celtic Knot projects inspired by the photographs she has taken on her trips to Ireland are amazing. Visit the Wells Center to see the mounted photographs next to the projects and discover the inspiration for yourself!
