Please continue to make the facemasks. If you can, please take a picture of the masks you make. Please send your pictures to Lynn Cairncross, Susan Torrens, and myself for the Newsletter and the Web Page.

Each year we have supported Meals on Wheels with our placemats. Please, if you can, make placemats for Meals on Wheels. If we each made one each month we could have over 500 to bring to our meeting in the fall. That may seem like a lot but that does about two days. There are about 200 – 250 meals delivered each day. They also run the Diners Club where they bring some seniors together for a lunch to help combat loneliness.
Quilts Kingston 2021
Quilts Kingston is in a holding pattern at this time due to Covid 19. When the restrictions are past and we return to normal, whatever the new normal will be, we will re-address the Quilt Show. In the meantime you could make something for the Quilt Show.
I ask that each member make something for our next Quilt Show – a table runner, a lap quilt, a full size quilt, a set of placemats, slippers, and so on. What you make is your choice. If you are unable to store it , please email me and between us we will arrange pick-up for it to go into storage.
Enjoy the spring weather,
keep your distance,
and reach out to others as many have difficulty dealing with isolation at this time.
The final clue for this year’s block of the month, has been added!
More updates coming soon…..
Keep on stitching, and stay healthy!
Social distancing is important for everyone.
