Hope you had a wonderful and thoughtful Memorial Day, remembering
those who have given the ultimate sacrifice to insure the freedoms we
should not take for granted.
June’s PWQ program will be a demonstration by Denise Hovey of Creative
Cloth Closet in Canon City. She always has fun, new ideas and
techniques for us. She will have some items from her shop for sale at
the meeting, so you might want to bring extra checks or that green

Some reminders: Colorado Quilting Council meeting on June 23, 2012 is

the CQC meeting. Canon City is hosting the July 28 CQC and I encourage
you to support that meeting also. As of this writing, there still are
spaces available for the Rob Appel workshop on July 29, in Canon City.

Remember to bring your completed squares from the strips you cut at
the April PWQ meeting for Ben and Gabby's quilt. Return all left over
fabric pieces with your squares at the meeting as they will be used in
the borders and binding. There will be a SEW Saturday at the PW
Library from 9:00am to 4:00pm on June 9. Please plan to come and help
sew the squares together, even for only a few minutes. Calling all
