REQUEST

 

 

Last month we responded to a request from Mission del Sol church elders asking if we could help them fulfill a need with their participation in the Family Promise program.  They needed FLAT twin size bed sheets.  They were in need of 20 sheets and because of your generosity we provided them with 19.
This month they are asking us to help out with FITTED sheets.  Twin size... fitted... don't need to be new, just not stained with no holes or tears. The need is for 20 sheets.  
If you would like to help Peace by Piece Quilters fulfill this request please bring your gently used, or new, twin size fitted sheets to the bee this month.  There will be a space set up for collection of the donated sheets.

 

 

                            ROAD TRIP         

A few weeks ago you should have received a message from me with a few time sensitive topics.  The most important one was information about a HUGE Quilters Downsizing Fabric Sale.  This sale is exclusively for those of us that love all things quilting/sewing.  Not only will there be yards and yards of shop quality fabric at $2 per yard but also other quilt making related items.  The BIG sale is THIS Saturday, June 9.  Click HERE to check out the flyer for the details.  Hope to see ya there!
