Double Adobe Quilters

I have been so out of it for the last few months that I didn’t get the pictures and story about the groups quilt show in my blog.

Well yesterday the trailer home that was the clubhouse burnt to the ground. My understanding is the fire had not started inside the clubhouse but outside.  They lost everything.  All the fabric, machines, quilting materials, supplies and tools.  They had a meeting yesterday and had finished the last square of the crazy quilt. They were going to use it as their raffle quilt for the show next March. Also all the other quilts and wall hangings etc were a complete loss.  But the biggest loss is the clubhouse, where they would meet every Tuesday from about 9am to 3pm with a pot luck at 12 noon.  We could come anytime on Tuesday, so it left us ways to plan around other commitments.  And if you couldn’t make it every Tuesday they made you feel welcome when you could come.

There were angels around this group yesterday, one members house was threatened as she was taking a nap. And another ended up parking her car at another members home instead of the clubhouse (it was meant to be left at the trailer) as they set off for a afternoon appointment.  So we do see that good things were happening yesterday too.

A friend and I are going to set up a yard sale fund raiser. Another member has been contacted about a sewing machine that is no longer being used. So the healing has begun.

Have a good night!

  1. Jean, what a terrible shame. I know that not everyone appreciates quilters, but arson? And home threats? At least you still have your pictures, and you aren't waiting for the Federal Government to come to your rescue -- you're starting the healing process yourself.
