Winners Parade

Anne Hindmarch

Our October meeting featured a parade of winners from the show. All ribbon winners were encouraged to bring their quilts in to show. Our Best of Show Large winner was Anne Hindmarch for her quilt A Tribute to Jane. Anne had been on a cruise ship in the Atlantic Ocean during the show and did not know her good news for two weeks. Only the day before the meeting did she learn that her prize was a Bernina sewing machine from Ann Hudson's Bernina Sewing, Etc. in Ridgeland!

Quilts by Susie Jackson, Vivian Plummer, Betty Allen, Faye Barlow, Ella Lucas

Our members brought in 67 pillows for our ongoing project of making pillows for children in hospitals. These pillows will be distributed to Forrest General Hospital, Wesley Medical Center, and Marion General Hospital in Columbia. Several walker totes were also turned in. We have had a request for catheter bags and have learned that the walker totes can be used for this purpose also.

This is off topic, but I don't see any other way of making contact to ask my question.

Are there any crazy quilters in your group?

I hated I missed the show this year but am sure it was a great success without me. Pnuemonia made it impossible for me to attend.

Yes, we have members doing every type of quilting. Very little crazy quilting by hand, I must admit. Machine embroidery work becoming popular, too.
