In addition, we are happy to be partnering with the Heartland United Way on a new project to provide Comfort Cases for children that are in.  need in the foster care system. This program is still being developed with a goal to deliver in June of 2019. 

We appreciate all the caring quilters who share their love and talents with the children in need in our community.

Save Your Scraps
Collect your scraps to help the Humane Society of Kearney. Mary Lothrop has volunteered to sew the scraps into old pillow cases to make beds for the animals of the shelter. Please bring a baggie of scraps to our meeting.

Community Quilts Update:
​Thank you for all the quilt donations from the last meeting.  The kids who will receive them will be overjoyed!

A big thank you to Loretta Roehrich and Les and Edith Soper for offering to do quilting for community project quilts.  We have received 40 quilts in this quilt year!

Thank you again for making a difference.
