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.

​ A special thanks to Dawne Brooks for making the labels for the charity quilts. The label reads "Made for you by a Prairie Pioneer Quilter." Susie will add a label to the quilts donated if not labeled when received. Through our Community Quilts program, the PPQG has donated many quilts to very worthy causes, the most recent of which was to the ARC for their annual fundraiser.

Please continue to work on your community quilts. We especially need boy themed quilts for CASA.  if possible. If you just get the tops done, we have members who will quilt and bind to complete.

If you would like your quilt donated to Toys for Tots, please designate that to Susie Powell & Kay Knowles, who will collect those through November. Susie will not be at the October meeting, so please give any quilts to Kay Knowles.
