Quilts for Joplin

Tomorrow - Friday, May 27 - we will begin our efforts in creating quilts of care for Joplin residents whose lives have been turned upside down by the tornado.

We know their recovery will be a long process, and it will be sometime before they will be able to accept our gifts of caring. Right now, the basic necessities of life are what they need. But by working on quilts now we can work toward being ready for when they can accept them.

We'll have kits available in fabrics that will make the young set smile -- "Dino" and "Dots & Daisies" -- or bring your own fabrics!

If you can't make it tomorrow, we've set some other Friday dates -- June 3 and 17, July 1 and 8.

Only Because of His Grace,

Tomorrow - Friday, May 20 -- is the first night of the Downtown Rogers 3rd Friday Twilight Walks of the season!

Our staff member, David Moran, will be here sharing his work. Although he has been quilting only a few years, he is very prolific, creative and talented! You will enjoy meeting him and getting to know more about him. Shown is his "Modern Art with Fabric" quilt. He will be conducting a workshop for this fun and easy quilt on Saturday, July 23 from 10 to 3.

We're hoping for good weather for all those who come out for "Twilight Walk" -- we'll also have some specials in the shop from 4:00 to 8:00 only!

Looking forward to seeing you soon!
