Request for Novelty Prints *UPDATE*

Donna contacted me to say that members were able to help her find all the items on her wish list. Teamwork makes the dream work!

I received this email from Donna Gillis looking for help from fellow Area 3 members:

"Hello Kathleen.  I was at our quilt guild yesterday and your name came up.  I have a challenge given to me to create a quilt out of a poem.  But I am in need of just fat quarters or small pieces of fabric.  I am looking for

material that has the following items:

Material with kitchen Stoves.  Old country stoves is preferred, However any type is acceptable

Material with tractors

Material with a pick on it.  Could be toothpicks or Logging Pick

Material with brooms

Material with flash drive or computer things.

Material with wheels, any type of wheel"

If you come across any of theses fabrics, please give Donna a call at 3207-836-3953 or email her at

She is more than willing to reimburse you for the fabric/postage.

Area 3 "Christmas in July" Raffle Baskets

Thank you to all of you who donated fabric towards the Area 3 basket. It may not look large, but it is chock full of fabric (over 17 yards!), quilting book and notions.

Village Scrappers Quilters generously donated two completed baskets.(I believe there is over 12 yds. of fabric in each basket) So, in total, three baskets were delivered to Callie Lavoie for the PTQG Raffle Walk.

There is still time for your chapter to make a basket. You can select any theme and be sure to get the basket to Callie before the beginning of the July quilt show.
