Girl’s Dresses for Malawi
At a past meeting, Mary Browning extended an invitation to the guild to participate in the second annual sew'in day for making dresses for girls in Malawi. A project sponsored by the Liberty Corner and Basking Ridge Presbyterian churches. Although there are no sew'in days planned for this summer, there is always a need and if you'd like to contribute you can make the dresses at home.
The Board is asking all members to suggest Speakers to contact for future guild meetings. If you are interested in a favorite quilter, please let the Programs Committee know via email: email@example.com Use:”Suggestion for Speaker” in the subject line.
