July 28, 2019 – Children’s Quilt Show

The LNT Third Annual Children’s Quilt Show was a grand event!  Several young people, aged 17 and under, displayed their quilts, receiving many “oohs” and “aahs” from attendees.  The talent and creativity of our local youth is quite inspiring! The puzzle table was a favorite place for many to “hang out” during the afternoon. Debbie […]

August 1, 2019 – LNT Birthday Party

The first Thursday in August is traditionally the time for celebrating the birthday of Louisville Nimble Thimbles.  This year was extra special because it is LNT’s 40th birthday!  We celebrated with loads of food and special guests who were members 40 years ago during the founding of LNT. Sew-and-Tell Kim has gone to town with […]

July 25, 2019 – Cuddle Care Bind-A-Thon

The Cuddle Care Bind-A-Thon was a huge success.  This could not have been possible without 1) the planning of our esteemed Cuddle Care Committee, and 2) the graciousness of the Sewing and Vacuum Authority at 8118 Preston Highway who allowed us to use their private sewing room for the day, and even provided lunch!  The […]

July 18, 2019 – Cuddle Care-A-Thon

Every year we are so fortunate that member Angela Huffman makes her quilting studio, Quilted Joy, available to LNT members for a day of quilting many of the tops we’ve made for the babies and children at Norton’s Children’s Hospital.  The day before, the Cuddle Care Committee and helpers loaded the long arm machines with […]

June 27, 2019 – Trip to Liberty, Kentucky

After only a few misadventures and miscommunications along the way, six cars loaded with 25 LNT members arrived at Liberty, Kentucky, just in time for our scheduled lunch at the Bread of Life Restaurant, owned and operated by the Galileans Children’s Home.   Mmmmm – Good home cooking filled our tummies, but instead of taking […]

June 20, 2019 – Quilt of Valor

Robbie chose a lovely pattern for this year’s Quilt of Valor.  She prepared 30 small Friendship Star blocks and cut strips of red, white, and blue.  Members finished the block by sewing the strips around the perimeter to make large Log Cabin blocks. Oops!  (This happens to all of us.) Here’s what four blocks look […]

June 6, 2019 – State Fair Information Night

Susan Hofercamp and Pam Shartzer are always so willing to share Kentucky State Fair Information with the group.  There are a few changes every year, and this year was no exception.  One important change is that this year an exhibitor can have an entry in any number of departments (except Homebrew Beer) for $15.  (That’s […]

May 16, 2019 – Cuddle Care

The Cuddle Care Committee has outdone themselves again!  Today we learned the Quilt-As-You-Go technique.  The committee prepared the backing, batting, and strips for the blocks, and members just sewed away to make 16″ squares for the charity quilts. In addition to the sewers, there were also pressers and cutters who further prepared the blocks for […]

May 2, 2019 – Finishing Your Quilt

This evening was full of information and options for finishing your quilt.  If the basics for finishing a quilt were in a class called “Finishing Your Quilt 101”, then this would be “Finishing Your Quilt 102”.   We had a splendid time learning from each other and are anxious to try something different on our […]
