January 17, 2019 – Cuddle Care

Debbie and the Cuddle Care Committee were their very organized selves, as usual, and had prepared a table full of pastel strips and paper squares for making our variation of string blocks.  We sewed the strips diagonally onto the paper, then passed them to others who would the press and trim them.  (Sewing the fabric […]

Last fall APQS interviewed our own Cuddle Care Chair, Debbie Hampton and posted it on the APQS.com website.

December 6, 2018 – Christmas Party

The Christmas Dinner is always a great time when members bring their favorite dishes and we sit around and eat and relax and eat and laugh and eat some more.    Luann thanked the 2018 LNT board and welcomed others who will serve in 2019. Door prizes are always a hit! Thanks to Cuddle Care […]

November 15, 2018 – Fleece Blanket

In spite of frigid temperatures, ice, and no power in over 70,000 homes in the area, several members braved the elements to attend Marilou’s class on how to make a checkered Fleece Blanket with appliqués.  Making a cozy blanket while looking through the windows at a winter wonderland seemed quite suitable.  The only thing missing […]

Nov. 1, 2018 – Non-slip Foot Pedal Pad

A foot pedal that keeps slipping and scooting away from your foot will no longer be a problem for those who attended Marilou’s “Non-Slip Foot Pedal Pad” class.  Even though she said to use ugly fabrics because, after all, it would be on the floor, these pads are beautiful!  We had a great time making […]
