Charity Projects

Charity items distributed since last newsletter: Carilion Franklin Memorial Hospital Emergency Room 20 bears


Check out the Charity Projects table … we plan to have Christmas stocking patterns cut out of material for the May and/or June LQG meeting! These are meant to be used as a foundation for the front of the stocking … for sewing strips onto or "crazy" quilting … but you can use them however you wish. So start gathering your Christmas material and thinking about ideas of how to make the Christmas stockings for Step, Inc. (Head Start of Franklin County). This way if it's raining and you can't get out in the garden, you'll have a quick project ready to sew … and feel like you've accomplished something … and beaten the Christmas rush!! Stockings should NOT be filled … empty stockings are preferred by the teachers.

If you need labels for your completed charity projects … they are located in the library cabinet on the left … on the lower left shelf in white and teal plastic boxes. Take some home and have them ready to sew onto your finished projects.

Thank you for all your efforts on the charity projects … they really are very much appreciated by our community!

Your Charity Committee … Irene Capps, Teena Livsey and Sandy Horan
