Patchworkers' August Meet

Patti Schneider (L) shows off a scrap quilt she recently completed, as Janice Coke (R) helps with the display)

Patchworker members (l-r) Tonya Rosamond, Rosie Vaught, Janice Coke, and Linda Jenkins discuss patterns at the August 17 Sew-In.

Twenty members and three guests met August 13 for the Collinsville Patchworkers' Meeting. Patti Schneider's name was drawn for the next "pizza box" and she chose Civil War colors and a particular pattern for album signature blocks. The 5" nickle square exchange for September will be twelve 5" squares of the same pink fabric. Linda Pfeffer gave the program, which showcased "UFO's" - otherwise known as "unfinished objects," or in this case, quilt tops that still need quilting!

Several members met again on Saturday, August. 17 for the monthly Sew-In, and enjoyed a day of discussion, a pot luck lunch, and lots of machine and hand-sewing.

The next general meeting will be Sept. 10, 7 PM at the Collinsville Library.

VFW Benefit Fundraiser
Steve and Johnna Troglin are both AF veterans and members of the Collinsville VFW. In 2011, Steve was deployed to Al Asad, where he contracted a serious illness. Their mounting medical expenses have prompted us to host a fundraiser dinner on their behalf. All money raised from this benefit will go directly to the Troglins. An event flyer should be attached. Would you please help us spread the word? We would also appreciate your attendance if possible!

Thanks so much!
