Peace by Piece has received from pretty cool new tools this month!  

We now have a cart to help us move those tubs of fabric from my vehicle into Mission Hall on set up night and back out to my vehicle after the bee.  That job just got a LOT easier and just in time for the heat of summer.  It was DONATED!

And these tools are going to be very appreciated by anyone tying quilts.  Pliers to pull the needles through the fabric (no more sore fingers).  And some REALLY long needles.  I've been told these needles are a must for tying.  Also DONATED!!

And this nifty card.  For some time now we have been supplying a local quilt shop with brochures containing information about who we are and what we do that also invites interested people to come and sew with us.  Those brochures have recently become too pricey ($40 for 25 brochures) for our purse.  So I went searching for a less pricey solution and came up with these ($10 for 50 cards).  They are double sided so they hold ALL the info we need to share, even a map!  I'll have them at the bee for you to check out, look for them on the table where the sign in book is.  Also DONATED!!!  

So, May has been like Christmas for Peace by Piece! 







During the May Peace by Piece Quilters bee we completed 42 quilts.  We also completed 13 tops.  The bee raffle items raised $24 dollars.  We currently have 66 kits waiting to be sewn together and 16 kit-kits ready to be cut.  We have 46 tops in the closet waiting to be quilted or tied.  As always we'll have a couple of sewing centers, a few tying stations, along with cutting and kit-kit stations set up.  Ready for another GREAT bee!






AZ Blankets for Kids has been in operation for twelve years and produced almost 80,000 quilts!
