News to Use from RQ September 7th
Posted by KJCB on September 07, 2017
We issued a challenge to our BOM members at last week's meeting to help us send "quilted" love down to those impacted by Hurricane Harvey in Houston, TX. We are collecting finished quilts that are at minimum a "baby-sized" quilt (approximately 45" square). The RQ family has a personal contact in Texas who has agreed to see the quilts distributed to those in need following Hurricane Harvey. If you are able to give and would like to help, please drop your completed quilt off by no later than October 7th. Thank you for your support of spreading "quilted" love. On to the news...
