The meeting for Tuesday, December 11, 2018, will be at the Mint Hill Library Community Room, ** see note below, located near the intersection of Highway 51 and Lawyers Road intersection. The hours are 4:00 pm till 6pm this month. At 6 we will adjourn to travel to Angela's Restaurant on Margaret Wallace Road, near the Idlewild Road intersection, for some dinner and fellowship together. Please join us there if you wish. Do let me know if you plan to go to Angela's so I can give the manager a head count.
**Please be advised, there is major construction at the Lawyers Road, Thompson Road, Bain School Road intersection, which is closed. Do NOT exit I-485 at Lawyers Road. Best bet is to go on to the second exit after that and exit at Highway 51 to Mint Hill, or get off at Independence Blvd. exit and go Highway 51 to the Library.
We are very casual and have a good time while working on our blankets. You don't have to be "on time" or stay the whole time, so come when you can and leave when you wish. We will be looking for you. ****************************************************************
We don't give formal sewing lessons at our meetings, but we do teach at Quilt Club. If you wish to learn to quilt or improve your skills, as well as make quilts for Project Linus, please join us on the first Friday of each month, in Locust, NC, at the West Stanly Senior Center located at Town Center next to the Ace Hardware store. We meet at 10:00 am, led by the capable hands of Judy Lynch and Nancy Wells, and usually finish up around 3 PM. Bring your sewing machine and a bag lunch. We also have a couple of machines there which have been donated, in case you don't have one. We have fun and make some awesome quilts. Contact us for more info on this.

If you are scheduling a group Make a Blanket Session, please contact us and we will come to your event, bring supplies needed, and teach your group the proper technique for making better fleece blankets for our area. We have found that children under 5th grade age do not have the skills to make blankets, so take this into consideration when thinking of this as a mission/service project. The national Project Linus organization requires that the blankets we distribute be made to certain standards. If they don't meet those requirements, we cannot deliver them to the children without substantial remaking on our part. Please try to make fleece blankets as neat and well done as possible so we don't have to remake them. It takes much more time to remake poorly made blankets, which keeps them from the hands of the children who need them.
At this time, we are into January, 2019, with planned Make-a-Blanket sessions. Crewsquarters@aol.com.
Please go to the page titled "Schedule a Session" to find our information needs and email us your answers to them, so we can help you with your session.
