Charity Quilts Project Sew-In was a great success.

Thank you, Sharon Neidigh, for being our hostess last Friday, March 28, for our Charity Quilt Project Sew-In. As you can see in these photos, we had plenty of room to do everything we set out to do for the day.
Sharon had sewing machines ready for us to use, as well as cutting mats and hot irons for pressing. Being able to sew for four hours, stopping only for lunch, was a real plus. Speaking of lunch, the pot-luck food was quite tasty and varied. The food was so good, and the sun so warm, that several of us got a little drowsy afterwards.

There were nine quilters present, including a new friend discovered by Sharon Neidigh and Delores Jenisch at the AQG quilt show. What a treat to have her join in with us for the day. Her name is Kathy O'Brien, and we look forward to seeing her at meetings when her schedule allows.

Please keep in mind that Nimble Thimbles will no longer be using the 5th Tuesday of the month for Charity Quilt sewing at our regular meeting place. Instead, we will meet in homes and/or at the Chandler Police Dept., Desert Breeze substation at 251 N. Desert Breeze Blvd. This will allow us to have a longer sewing time per meeting. We will rotate the times of our meetings so as to accommodate to our members' varied schedules.

If you would like to hostess a Charity Quilts Project Sew-In, please let us know. The date and place of the next Charity Quilts Project has not been decided yet, but we'll let you know ASAP.
