Murfreesboro Sewing Ladies

The Bulloch Hall Quilt Guild in Georgia caused a feeding frenzy today at the charity sewing group!  It was like Christmas!  The Guild members loaded up my car at last Thursday's meeting and sent a ton of 'I am so over this' fabrics and patterns and trim and yarn and just tons of other stuff to the girls in Tennessee.  These are just a few of the girls - lots of the members seemed to hide when the camera came out!!!

Most of the upholstery and corduroy fabric never made it in the building!  It was nabbed and loaded into cars right in the parking lot.  It will be used to make walker and wheelchair caddies for the Veterans Hospital.

The yarn and knitting needles were snatched up to.  They will go to the group that knits for the military and for the children's hospital.  Christmas fabric will be used for stocking for the military.  Novelty fabrics will be used for 'I Spy' quilts for toddlers in the hospital.  Red, white and blues will be used for military quilts for the frontline hospitals. Flannel went to the group that does little blankets for the neo-natal unit at the local hospital.  Baticks and calicos and trims went to the group that is making little dresses for the children in Haiti.  Yardage went for project Linus and was used as backings today to get ready for a sewing day on March 20th where more than 150 volunteers will need advising.  Embroidery floss went to the girls tieing quilts.  Found a couple thimbles that were used today and ribbon went to everyone. 

Now, RJ and Jill did wonder what kind of women made quilts in Georgia. . .
Seems they are just not that glitz-y in Middle Tennessee!  But, they even found a need for this sparkly piece of heaven!!  I didn't ask. . .

From the Murfreesboro Sewing Ladies to the Bulloch Hall Quilt Guild --  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.  We appreciate each and every donation and promise NOTHING will go to waste!  xoxox
