Please bring the following:
    your sewing machine with neutral color thread

If you have any 12" quilt blocks, completed cuddle quilt tops, or backing fabrics you would like to contribute, please bring these along and we'll add them to the party mix. Completed cuddle quilts can also be turned in.

The Choo Choo Quilters are nearing the halfway mark toward the Goal of 51 Cuddle Quilts by January 2011. Join us for a few hours of "social sewing" as we move closer to the finish line. We can do it with everyone's help!
