MIRACLE QUILTS NEWS ¯NOVEMBER 2010
This past month has been an exceptional one for Miracle Quilts! We have been the recipient of a MOST generous gift of FIVE brand new Janome sewing machines. Now when our sewing angels come to spend the day sewing, there will be no down time trying to adjust and fix 20 year old machines. This will enable us to spend our time sewing!
If any of you are in the market for a new machine, Sewing Products, of Shelby Twp, Michigan is offering very deal on the JANOME MY STYLE 100. Al is the owner. His phone number is 586.566.4500. He was gave Miracle Quilts a very good price on our new machines. With Christmas coming, it would make a new sewing machine would make a great gift!
The American Legion and Women¯s Auxilary of Royal Oak, Michigan presented Miracle Quilts with two very generous checks. We cannot thank them enough for their support. This enables us to purchase much needed supplies (fabric, thread and batting).
If you are attending the November meeting, we will give you the opportunity to get a kit that has been all cut for you. You will be able to work on that kit each time you attend Miracle Quilts. We will have other projects there for you to work on also if you choose.
In October, Jeff James, a professional photograph took a group shot of all the angels that attend our monthly sewing meetings. The photo came out fabulous! I have had copies made and they are being circulated for when people inquire about Miracle Quilts. Each person that attends Miracle Quilts will get one.
THANK YOU¯S GO OUT TO FOR THE MONTH OF OCTOBER!!!!
