We will be donating all the supplies to make quilts for the Spokane Shriner's Hospital to give comfort to the kids who are going through orthopedic or burn treatment there. We need lots of help to make this work. We need everyone who is willing to give any amount of time you can to do anything from Cutting, Piecing, Pressing, using the long arms, binding and labeling. Please sign up so we know how much to prepare or just drop in to do whatever you can for as long as you can. This is in Honor & Memory of Twila's dad, Lonnie D. Penney Sr., a Shriner who dedicated the last 20 years of his life to volunteer time, help raise money and who believed every child deserves the best medical care available no matter the circumstances. And tried to live their motto "A man never stands as tall as when he kneels to help a child." Please help us make this a success!
