Basket for the Cancer Live Auction Fundraiser to be held Feb 15, 2017

  • The quilting/sewing room has been asked to sponsor a gift basket for the live auction.
  • All Donations are gratefully accepted:
    1. We are NOT limiting the contents to sewing items only but suggest gifts which appeal to all our senses such as wine, good chocolate or cookies, soothing tea, a relaxing CD, this month’s quilting magazine or a book, aromatic shower gel or lotion, you get the idea…..

      Of course quilting supplies are also necessary, so think about a new, duplicate tool you have stashed, a notion you find to be very handy (i.e. that purple thing), jelly rolls or stacks of fat quarters. We will also include handmade items such as a table runner, placemats, a bag, or embroidered items, etc.
  • Deadline: Donations must be received no later than Feb 6, 2017. Donations can be dropped off:
    1. in the sewing room
      at Monday Morning Coffee
      at site # 380
      or text Barb for Pick-up (Click for Contact Info)
  • Coordinators:
