The rainy evening of January 8, 2013 found 18 members of the Collinsville Patchworkers meeting at the Library for Show and Tell, and a program by Janice Coke - who shared a variety of tips and solutions for busy quilters, plus directions for a rick-rack quilt.

Mary Woods received her requested lavender and white blocks, and Candy Reisinger chose colors of cream, burgundy & teal for her blocks next month. The February " 5" Nickel Exchange" will be a dozen squares in a pink pattern, in celebration of Valentine's Day.

My new "school" office is located across the street from Sallee Field so I'm guessing you might get some additional CHS Soccer coverage this spring. I've have an update soon on how to best locate me, but this is one more place to look (Education Service Center [ESC] at 1902 W. Maple). I'm still checking the Museum phone messages and mail daily but your chances of catching me there are reduced, You can still make an appointment at either office. My cell phone number is (918) 798-1804. -- Ted Wright -- Jan. 11, 2013
I also hope to release info soon on ordering photo CDs and 2013 CHS Senior pages.
