The Collinsville Patchworkers met May 12 at the Library, and President Rosie Vaught displayed her collection of batik fabrics purchased in Singapore. Kay Pritchett and JoAnn Woods shared Patriotic fabric postcards for our fighting troops, members discussed quilting tips, and Peggy Peterson won the fat quarter drawing. The next meeting will be June 9 at the Library.
