The Lancaster Quilt Show has been rescheduled for August! The new dates are Aug.5th - Aug. 8th, and will be held at the Doubletree Willow Valley resort. This is in conjunction with the AQS show.
Due to the Governor's mandate the shop is closed until the ban is lifted. I will be in the shop this Friday & Saturday during normal shop hours to take care of the on line vendor orders. Beginning next week, I will in the shop Tuesday through Thursday from 10am to 5pm to fill web & phone orders. Much of the shop's fabric is posted on our website for your viewing pleasure. If you need something, please call ahead and we can arrange for a curb side pick-up or I can mail the item to you.
Hospitals & Nursing Homes Need Your Help!
I have received several calls this week regarding the much needed masks for our hospitals and nursing homes. The number of masks needed are in the thousands! So I am asking you to get out your stash and make masks! There are a dozen different videos on the web with directions. Personally I feel the rectangular ones with pleats and ties are the best, since one size will fit all.
The shop will be a drop-off site for the masks. Please put them in a plastic bag and set them on the shop's porch during the day on a Tuesday Wednesday or Thursday so I am sure to see them. I will distribute them to the nursing homes and hospitals that have contacted me.
If you live in the Lehigh Valley you can deliver your masks to the Lehigh Valley Hospital at 2024 Lehigh St. Allentown, Monday- Friday between 9am and 3pm.
Deb Ranck is organizing crews of 10 people/day to sew masks at the Heritage Center in Summit Hill. (The Heritage Center is located at 1 West Hazard St. in the old St. Paul's UCC church.)The sessions will be held from 10am to 2pm. Drinks will be provided, but sewers should bring their lunch. Eachsewer will have their own 6' table, (following CDC guidelines) and givena mask pattern to follow. Some fabric has been donated, but they are also accepting donations of cotton or cotton/poly fabric. If you are interested, contact Deb at 484-425-0255 to schedule a day.
Stay Calm and Make Masks!
