October Patchworkers Meeting
Collinsville Patchworkers met Oct. 9, 2012 at the Library, and discussed filling baskets for the annual Silent Auction Library fundraiser, and members were reminded of the Claremore Quilt Show scheduled for Oct. 19.

Final plans were made for the upcoming retreat, and monthly Sew-In (always scheduled for the first Saturday that follows the regular meeting). Rosie Vaught received the exchange blocks in "crayon colors," and Janice Coke chose black and white, with a bright splash of color for her Nov. blocks.

Chris Pierce presented a program on block strategy...sewing strips together & cutting shapes that can be arranged a myriad of ways.

Next month's meeting will be November 13 at the Library, with the dozen 5" square exchange in "blacks."

Hannah's Helping Hands, Inc. — Our Mission
We are a non-profit 501(c)3 organization providing financial assistance to families with children battling cancer. Many families need help with the most basic needs for their families during this fight for their child’s life. Some must leave work for months and even years to care for their sick child and the financial loss can be devastating. Our goal is to help as many families being treated locally as possible. We help with basic needs such as gas & food cards, groceries, wigs, utility payments, prescriptions, medical co-payments, rent/housing as well as other expenses. Our referrals come from doctors, nurses and staff at a local children’s hospital in Tulsa as well as our local communities.
