RAFFLE QUILT UPDATE--Donna Armstrong
50/50 Raffle - Every Ticket is a Chance to Win - Naked Warrior Project
Thanks to all of you that have completed and submitted your blocks for our raffle quilt, donated for raffle quilt tickets and signed up to complete blocks for both of our quilts. At this time, all of the blocks for "Will You be my Neighbor" have been accounted for. We will have extra blocks, so please feel free to sign up for any of the blocks, but specifically for blocks 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 13, 14 and 16. We have one sign up for each of these. From what I am seeing, this is going to be an awesome quilt. If we get additional blocks, we can raffle off 2 quilts!!

The "Remixed Geese" quilt is coming along a bit slower. Although all colors have been accounted for, we need 48 blocks to complete a 54x66" quilt and at this point, we have 19 blocks signed up for. I know there was an amazing Paper Piecing class that Cheryl Murphy hosted that would make this block easy, so if you took part in that class, please show us your talent and sign up for a few of the blocks.

I will be at the Birmingham Unitarian Church on Wed. February 10 and March 10 (final day to submit) from 6-6:30 pm to drop your blocks off. You can also drop off your blocks on my front porch any time. Please text me if you plan on dropping them off, so that I know they are on my porch. 31800 Arlington Dr. Beverly Hills, MI 48025. You can also mail me your blocks to the same address. Please make your check out to GLHQ for the amount listed on the sign-up link and send me a message that you have mailed them (248.514.8011).

                                 HAVEN requests from Carol Brooks:

Well the holidays are over and we’ve started a new year. I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays as best they could and are looking forward to a bright and wonderful new year.
I want to thank everyone for their donations last month. I took $900 worth of clothes, toys, gift cards, and checks to Haven before Christmas.
I asked the people at Haven what they really needed most at this time and they said they really could use cereals and snacks. I also thought we might concentrate on children’s clothing, any size, any age, and for both girls and boys. Remember they must be new. Anything you would like to donate would be greatly appreciated. Looking forward to seeing everyone at the January meeting.

I will be at the church on January 16 from 1-2 to pick up anything someone might want to donate.
