Community Quilters Needs:We are out of our Oncology Bags, as I delivered the last group this week. This is an ongoing need, so please keep sewing up these little items. I am told that the chemo patients really enjoy picking through the selections, so please make them out of fun and happy prints, both male and female oriented prints. Remember that we are now being asked to make them also for the Cardiology Dept to hold heart monitors, and they have asked for bags with a closure such as button and hole, velcro, etc. The directions for the oncology bag will be posted to the website on Thursday morning.We also have an ongoing need for those burp cloths, so please keep them coming also. I will have patterns available at our table at guild.Regarding quilts, are greatest need are those in the 4X5 size range, with kids’ prints, both boys and girls, These are for Head Start, and they use them when they take a nap. Since they are on the floor, it’s probably best to make them out of quilter’s cotton, and not flannel, although we have given them flannel also. The quilts get washed frequently and get a lot of use.Thanks ladies for your continued support of Community Quilters!Sue

Karen Donobedian 541-563-4019
I just won this machine at the Willamette Quilt Festival when my Terracotta Army and Chariots quilts won Best of Show. What an honor that was but the problem is that I just bought this very same machine in August. I don’t need two. So, I’m selling this wonderful machine. Price to guild member $2,200. Retail price is $2,995. This is a great machine for home use or especially for taking to classes. It only weighs 28 pounds. The features that I particularly like are:
- Pivot feature, where the foot pops up when you stop so you can easily insert your next piece.
- Push Buttons for lowering the pressure foot, needle up/down, thread cutting, reverse stitch and locking stitch.
- Automatic needle threader
- Comes with 16 pressure feet including a walking foot
- Comes with a large quilting extension table
