A BIG thank you!

Big thanks are due to a lot of people who helped make our part of Snuggled in Hope's quest to send every camper from Flying Horse Farms with a quilt. 

Here are the gals that helped make the beds with quilts in all the cabins:

Sandy S, Deb B, Linda J, Cheryl B, Sherry B, Karen Z
Candy D, Carole T, Karen W
And to all the helpers who either donated fabric, batting, organize the fabric,  time to make the quilts, bind the quilts and wash the quilts, we appreciate your generosity! It was a huge joint effort and with everyone pitching in, it made it possible to make 97 quilts since last September. We are hoping to be able to do that again this year!

Thanks again to all who helped:

I know it's quite a shock that we are getting MORE rain!  Too bad it wasn't planned for today. But since we arrived home last night from vacation, that just wasn't going to happen!  I made the decision to pull the plug on the quilt show BEFORE we invested hours of time getting it all ready.

Thanks to all who have helped to get these quilts ready for a week's worth of campers at Flying Horse Farms! We will be delivering 90 of the quilts on Monday, July 13. 

AND THEN...... to start on 2016 quilts!

2015 Quilt Show!


Announcing the Quilt Show for 2015. Lots of changes! The Quilt Show this year will be in July, instead of the usual end of August. The biggest addition will be the addition of approximately 100 quilts made for Flying Horse Farms!  These were made starting last Sept. until May of this year by several local quilters from Marion, Caledonia, Delaware, Westerville, Marysville, Richwood, Mt. Vernon and Cardington! Without these gals, this would have not been possible. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO DONATED TIME TO SEW, QUILT, BIND, FABRIC, BATTING AND MONEY!

The reason we are having the quilt show in July is that we rose to the challenge laid down by the Snuggled in Hope gals to make at least 80 quilts. If we met that goal, we would be allowed to 'dress the beds' in the cabins for the kids. Well, we did it! And the date that we have to dress the beds is July 13. Hence the bumped up quilt show date. 

Another change to this quilt show is that there will be a limited amount of quilts and quilted items for sale to raise money for more supplies (mostly batting!) for more Flying Horse Farm quilts. 

So, please invite your friends, family, neighbors and anyone else you can think of and come join us at our Quilt Show! It will be Sunday, July 12 from 12 noon to 4 PM.  We'd love to share what we did and invite you to join us in the cause for helping out. 

This year 600 quilts were required to supply all the campers. And next year we were told to expect a 10% increase! That's a lot of quilts!  And it takes a lot of people to make that happen. We are hoping to recruit more people to help in this worthwhile venture!

Hope to see you all there!
