A Major Award!

May 26, 2020

Many of our Guild members have been generously using their  time and talents in making masks that have been donated to the Sew a Mask--Share a Mask program at The Pikes Peak Regional Emergency Management office.  We were recently presented with this framed certificate thanking our organization for all the exceptional donations.  

These masks in turn have been distributed to first responders, organizations, offices and rescue missions with the goal of providing  everyone in our community with this vital safety precaution. 

 

Way to go Ladies!

Just for Grins & Giggles

PPQG is joining with all national organizations in suspending all scheduled guild-sponsored meetings and activities.

If you belong to a quilting bee or other independent group activity the decision remains with you, but we highly recommend you use caution and cancel all group meetings.
