Heartfelt Love for Our Sisters and Their Families

Dear Otis & Lyons Ladies,
On behalf of the OCQG, we all would like to extend our heartfelt emotions to our quilting sisters who have been directly affected so deeply by the Oregon fires.  Our Otis and Lyons ladies have suffered greatly and we want you to know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.  What we know so far is that Nancy Cross and more likely than not, Pat Lay have lost their homes in the Otis fires.  Diane Church, Kathleen Holt , Michelle Newman, and Jacque Van Damme homes’ are ok.  Nancy Payne from Lyons home was spared while all her neighbors across the street were not.  Most of these ladies are living with others and can’t return to their homes.  Again, words cannot express how your quilting sisters feel for you or understand what you are going through.  However, we want you to know we are here for you to do whatever we can in your situation.
 Diane Tillotson, President, OCQG
