Heartstrings Quilt Project/Fremont Sew In

Tuesday, October 12, 2010
One group I am very proud to be a member of is the Heartstrings Quilt Project.  On October 23rd I will be going to Fremont NE for a sew in.  There will be laughter, camaraderie, and JAY'S SOUP!   An excerpt from Jay---

Just a brief note to let people know that the Nebraska sew-in in coming up very quickly. It will be held Saturday October 23, 2010. The location is the same as the previous sew-in, which is Keene Memorial Library, 1030 Broad Street, Fremont, NE. It will be starting at 9 am and go until 5:30 when its time to clean up. Lunch will be provided, which will be Chicken and Noodle soup, carrot cake, and dinner rolls.

The focus of the sew-in will be to tie quilts for immediate use and delivery in the Fremont-Omaha-Lincoln metro areas. I would like to think that we should be able to get 8 quilts finished and that's my goal, more would be fantastic as well.

There is also a quilt show that Friday and Sunday, across the street, and three buildings down from the library.

As a note, for those you need to batting, JoAnn's has 40% bulk batting this weekend online offer only.

Heartstrings Quilt Project is not limited by pattern, method, or receiving charity.  Which is good, since I'm out of scraps.  But, dear Jay has promised to save me some!
