Look at all of these BEAUTIFUL quilts being donated to the Quilter's Dream Batting Hopes and Dreams Quilt Challenge for ALS!!! 19 quilts were turned in during this challenge and 380 loyalty points were given out to the quilters! THANK YOU so much for supporting this community service project! I could not be happier...this just warms my heart!! I will be taking the quilts later today to Fed Ex for mailing, so there's still a little bit of time left to drop off a quilt and add to our collection.
What' New @ Creekside Quilting?
Well, last week was a little slow, but this week, we sure made up for it! Everyday was like Christmas when UPS or Fed Ex showed up!

Community Outreach Program
Our next Community Outreach Program is Hatched in Africa! We are honored to have Santi Brouwer come visit our store on Saturday. September 7th! Santi creates these beautiful embroidery designs and she will be having a trunk show at our store with some of her amazing quilts! Register HERE
Here is a little information about HATCHED IN AFRICA GIVES BACK WITH YOUR HELP
In May 2010 we introduced to you our community project that we support. Proceeds of the Sales of the Fantasy Parrot goes to supporting this community in desperate need of help. Why these children?
There are many people in need but these children are close to our heart. There was a great need to care for and feed the children in the Laerdrif community as they have been orphaned by Aids and now have the elderly caring for them. The community really struggles with affording basics like food, clothing and schooling as there is little and most days no income going their way. We have a special friend of our family that is a welfare worker and it is her personal daily mission to provide for this community. She is always looking for fresh fruit and vegetables!
The project is a creche where the children gather and get food daily. They feed 50 to 80 children. The community gets no assistance from the government and rely completely on private donations.
Click HERE to read more about Hatched in Africa and to see some of the amazing embroidery designs!
Please visit their Facebook page and see for yourself how you are helping us to provide for them... http://www.facebook.com/loveandpeacehomebase
