Lucile, Fabric, Treasurer & the Great Give

Gregg and I had the privilege of a visit with Lucile. She is looking well, and is continuing the sorting of her stash of fabric, re-organizing some of her home - and she still finds time to make blankets for us! Here are two of her latest - one crocheted and one quilted fleece:
We have received the offer of another quilter's stash of fabric. It is all cotton, fills four large 13-gallon bags (1/2 - 3/4 full), and is currently being stored in Kitsap County. If anyone reading this would like to sew for our guild, the fabric is yours for free! If you know someone who fits the bill, please pass the offer along!

There are currently two volunteer opportunities for you with Katie's Comforters Guild:
1. We need a treasurer. This involves receiving and depositing income, writing the occasional check (usually fewer than 5 per year), keeping the bank statements and signing a form for the Guild Association at the end of our fiscal year. If you are interested, please contact me (Karen = president) here, or on facebook.
2. We have been invited to participate in the Kitsap Great Give. This was a success last year - funds were raised which can be used to buy materials, and newspaper coverage helped to let people know about our guild and its mission. We need someone to take on the task of preparing paperwork and fielding all of the social media intake, as well as creating "buzz" on blog and facebook, during the campaign. If you have interested, please contact me (Karen = president) here, or on facebook!

Thank you, Lucile, and thank you, Linda 
 (our current Treasurer, who has served so generously for several years)!
