A “Day of Love” 09/22/18

Saturday’s “Day of Love” (Community Service/Quilt ’til You Wilt) was a big success. Many projects were completed and other projects made great progress. There was a Veteran’s Presentation on Saturday, too.

A big thanks to Elsie for organizing the service day, to the Anonymous Donor(s) who gave the fabric, and to all who helped at Friday night’s set-up and/or Saturday’s event.

Here are some of the photos:

2016 Veteran’s Day Presentations

The Community Service committee, under the direction of Renae Farnsworth, presented many beautiful quilts to veterans in the northeast Missouri area. Some of the photos of the presentations are shown below.

February 2016 HOF Show & Tell

Enjoy the Show & Tell from February. Lots and lots of charity quilts were made and shared this month.

(A big thank you goes out to Di Zook for taking photos this month.)

October 2014 QTYW — “Quilting for Veterans”

We are a bit behind in posting these photos from October’s QTYW. It is probably a good thing, too, because we have more pictures to share!

The October 18th event was held at the Annex building in Kirksville. The HOF Guild members in attendance worked primarily on our Community Service project, making and finishing quilts for veterans, in time for distribution on Veterans’ Day. We even had a couple of hard-working guests helping! Our special helper was Bobbianne Magruder, granddaughter of Mary Magruder. It was said that she was very good at picking up pins and emptying our scraps… a quilter in training!
