JUST FOR YOU

Email from Theresa, April 1, 2021:

The hospitals are accepting our quilts with much anticipation!  The children really need them now.  You are such wonderful people, I know we won’t let them down.  Drop off your quilts at our parking lot meeting, Tuesday, May 18, 10-11 am.

I hope everyone is finishing up their “just for you” quilts.  I am concerned.  I have had very few requests for labels, nor have I seen many photos of “Just for You“ quilts posted on our FB page. So I’m worried we won’t have many quilts this year.   I will be at the April parking lot meeting (for both guild and QOV) and can mail, or, possibly, deliver labels .  I will also have kits, if you need one.

Since we won’t be having a showing, please POST photos of your quilt(s) on our Facebook page!  I do miss seeing the quilts and your wonderful ideas.

 

Tuesday, May 18 – Drop off your quilts For Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta!

I hope everyone is working on their Just For You quilts!  The children still need them now more than ever,I would think.

In trying to get back to “normal,” I am currently planning on a May Drop Off – Tuesday, May 18, 2021 in the Canon Church parking lot, as we have been doing for other items.  Again, I am asking all quilts be washed in scent free detergent  and folded prior to drop off in a plastic bag to keep them clean.

I will have labels at the February, March, and April Meetings for both Gwinnett Quilters Guild and at the QOV meetings.  I can also mail them.

Volunteers are needed to help collect, repackage, and deliver the quilts to the hospitals.  Anyone who wants to help out, please send me and e-mail!

I do hope that we will be able to have a showing and blessing of the quilts, but at this time I cannot plan on it.

Any questions, please contact Theresa Schultz
