Christmas in June TMQG Meeting

Senior Services is excited that the TMQG was going to donate this month to their Christmas in July campaign. Specific info is on their website. They are always in need of adult diapers, small containers of detergent, toothpaste, and household paper products. Gifts cards are great! If members want to bring money,  a receipt will be issued. You can purchase $10 giftcards at Target. Let's fill the delivery car!

Bring a handmade item for show and tell that might be on your holiday project list for gift giving. It's not to early to start thinking about Christmas. 

Don't forget your quilts for the Mini Quilt Swap!  Can't wait to see all the creations.

Orlando Love Blocks

As I am sure all of you know by now, the Orlando Modern Quilt guild is taking donations for quilts for the Orlando shooting victims. 
I am currently in the process of putting together some blocks to include in a package and wanted to extend the offer to gather and mail out items for other members if you would like to bring them to the guild meeting next week. 

I hope to have the package ready to mail out by July 5th so if you want to add to it but don't think you will have items ready by the meeting, just let me know.
