Bags for Beads of Courage:

These bags will go to children with life threatening diseases at Mary Bridge. The children will earn beads and the bags provide a way for the children to keep everything together.
Mardell also reminded us that we are continuing to make quilts for Mary Bridge this year.

Rose Flannigan shared pictures of Julia, a friend in Olympia. She lost everything in a recent fire. Our Guild helped to replace some of her stash by donating fabric.
Dorothy Loveless shared 2 quilts she had made from scraps, reminding our Guild that if they have scraps and some extra time, the Rescue Mission is in need of quilts.
