February 2017 Guild Meeting – Annual Tie-In for Northern Rivers’ Kids

The February meeting was our Annual Tie-In for Northern Rivers' Kids.   Guild members and guests worked together to tie quilts which will be donated to Northern Rivers.  The children who are in Northern Rivers' program find much comfort in these quilts - the colors, the patterns, and the caring that goes into the making of them.   In 2016 the guild donated just over 100 quilts to Northern Rivers.

The tied quilts were taken home by guild members who will apply binding to finish the quilts and return them to Emily, the guild's Kids Quilts coordinator, who will deliver the quilts to Northern Rivers for distribution to the kids.

There was no show & tell at this meeting.

The December guild meeting was our annual Holiday Celebration, with members bringing in their favorite 'sweet and savory' treats to share. In addition to making comfort quilts for donation to Northern Rivers Family Services and the VA Hospital throughout the year, members brought in special donations of hats and gloves for the children at Northern Rivers and personal care items for the women at the Schenectady City Mission.
