The Meeting Place Was Hoppin'

At this week's guild meeting members participated in creating pillowcases assembly line fashion for residents of  Vera House. Vera House is a local shelter for victims of domestic violence. We've broken our past record with 54 pillowcases being produced in one meeting. We will be donating books along with these pillowcases to the mothers and their children.

The finished product.
Some of the members had their finished log cabin railroad blocks with them.
