The Knotty Ladies met at Carol Kato’s home. Various members reported on projects under consideration by the group. Lydia will be in charge of our quilts for veterans at the V.A. Rehabilitation Center in White City. They are in need of twin bed sized quilts (45 inches by 72 inches). Lydia brought one of her quilts to show the size and patriotic theme. We were reminded that not all recipients will be men. Dora brought news that Jeanette’s Fabrics in Central Point is a Quilt of Valor store. There is a community sewing day on the second Friday of each month from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Bring a project that you are working on or start a new one. They have instructions, books, fabrics, and details. They ask that you sign up so they can set up the correct number of tables and chairs. Call 541-423-5492 (Jeanette’s phone number) for information — or just stop in. In other old business, the high school play’s quilt show has been covered and there is no need for the Knotty Ladies to loan quilts for the run of the play. And then we moved on to the subject of Members’ Market projects. The group felt that table runners had run their course so members should feel free to make any items that interest them. We will be ready if that opportunity arises again.
Show and Tell included a gorgeous black and white quilt top, a racy lap quilt, a clever Red Hat Ladies quilt, a patriotic quilt, a knitted car robe, an unfinished baby quilt, a reversible tote bag, and some matching granddaughter dresses.
