I just got home Sunday evening from a great week of sewing and quilting with a group of quilting "sisters" in Stafford, Kansas. We finished 40 quilts for our veterans and soldiers and have 59 tops that were completed and each of us brought some home to finish, it was a week filled with fun and laughter. We all met about 5 years ago on an embroidery site and we quilt for charity...we are "Quilters for Comfort" and have  a yahoo site if you'd like to see some of our work. We are scattered all over the U.S. thus the meeting place in Kansas, kind of "in the middle"! It's great to be able to share our quilts with those in need and those that just need a gentle "hug" from home that a homemade quilt can give...hope I can do this for many more years!!!!

That is so awesome of you and your 'sisters'! That is something that I would like to do but need to get better at creating the hugs....

That sounds kind of like our new regional QCA quilting retreats except that we aren't working towards a group goal.  How often do you and your "sisters" get together?

This sounds wonderful Paula. I'm glad you all had a great time. I found your group on Yahoo but the photos are for members only.

We meet once a year in July, that month has always been for patriotic quilts, but in 2008 we decided we wanted to meet each other in person and it was wonderful, like going to a family reunion,instant love for one another, thus we call each other "sister"! I think sewing and quilting people just have big hearts and giving attitudes and so it's easy for us to feel love toward one another.
