Silver Threads Quilt Guild 2013 Charitable Giving

President Carol Stearns writes:

What an amazing meeting we had last week! I watched you, the audience, during the charity representatives’ presentation and there weren’t too many dry eyes! It was riveting to hear about the various organizations that service our community and how much need there is! When Lil Jennings talked about the single mother living in her car with 4 children, I almost lost it!

I am so proud to be a member of this group and proud of the maximum effort you made this past year! You really stepped up to the plate with so many beautiful quilts, stockings and pillowcases! And it made a difference to that one little boy or girl who will receive a quilt to call their own.
