Donation to NNQG charities

Carolyn Newberry has generously donated fabric and batting from her stash to the Nitetime Needler Quilt Guild charities.  This includes juvenile prints (perfect for our Quilts in Force charity), cozy flannels and plaids (great for larger quilts for older children and teens at Synergy House), and some lovely Mark Twain fabrics (a great choice for NKC Hospice lap quilts).  There are several crib quilt batts, at least one queen size batt, and some batting scraps.  Look for these items at the QIF table at the guild meetings. Take something and make up a quilt to give to our charities!

Carolyn has also donated additional UFOs and fabrics, along with stuffing, that would be great for smaller projects that we could sell at our annual quilt show's Silent Auction charity.  Holiday ornaments, stuffed toys, and miniature quilts could be made to support charitable works using these donations.  Brenda will bring in this second load of donated items to the January meeting. 

Thank you, Carolyn!

We enjoyed hearing Erica's stories and seeing her work.  She briefly demonstrated her method for making cathedral window blocks; she led a workshop on Saturday on the same technique.


Trip to Hamilton MO

Posted on August 21, 2014 at 1:35 PM Comments comments (0)

Marci Hainkel, Pam Peugh, and Lougene Geary traveled to Hamilton to visit the Missouri Star Quilt Company on Wednesday, where quite by chance they met Brenda Pfannenstiel taking a rare day off work with her mother Ardis Pfannenstiel and her friend, Sally Haake.  Driving to Hamilton is easy, and doesn't take much more than an hour from the Northland of KC.  Jenny Doan has four retail shops on Davis Street, with two more scheduled to open later this year!  The fabric selection is extraordinary; patterns and notions are limited.  In a two-block area one can buy almost any kind of quilting fabric imaginable, no matter your preferred style.  Doan's shops have attracted quilters from all across the country, and Canada, since she became a YouTube celebrity.  She spoke at our guild meeting several years ago.

Our new President, Pam Palmer
