Annual RMD Charity Night
The February BPQ meeting will be honoring our chosen charity, Ronald MacDonald House. Our guild members come together and spend the evening preparing quilt kits by sorting fabrics, cutting fabric and batting, preparing binding and lastly bagging the quilt kits. The quilt kits become available each month at general meetings for placement in BPQ foster homes where they will be lovingly sewn into comfort quilts for Ronald MacDonad Homes. Once returned to BPQ they will be taken to the RMD house to be adopted by a child and family staying at the home while under hospital care. This simple offering can bring much joy to a child facing treatment. Quilts are also offered to the siblings who may feel scared and/or left alone while the parents attention is focused on the ill brother or sister.
This will be a night of wonderful good will as well as an opportunity to get to know your fellow BPQ members. And all you have to do is show up; our Charity Co-Chairs, Susan and Dawn, will have work stations ready to "get 'er done". Hope to see you there!
Coming in March, a trunk show presented by the Cover to Cover Book Club Quilters from Portland, OR.
