Quilters are great people

At my last meeting of the wonderful minds of the brilliant quilters in Northeast Quilting Friends Quilt Guild, someone brought this little ditty in.  Generally speaking, you'll not find a kinder more giving group of people that quilters.  Young or old, they are worth their weight in the finest quilters cotton available.  

Being that we are in Kentucky, one of the local quilt shops, The Gathering Room, revolved a fundraising idea around horses.  The funds are for Rosehaven, a transitional home for women to break the cycle of abuse.  Our quilt group, has in the past held 2 raffles for quilts with 100% of the money going to Rosehaven, I think we made about $3,000.00 total.  I dare say that this idea for a calendar, with men and women wrapped in quilts, will far surpass that amount.  

This the only man, yes, peaking out of the stud barn.  These are a couple of the brave women will to Bare to Care as the slogan goes and show off some nice quilts in the process.  Good for you gals!
