The second in a series of Fort Wayne Chapter of the American Sewing Guild monthly meetings will be an open sewing session to make small heart-shaped pillows for breast cancer patients during treatment and recovery. There will also be a presentation about the chapter’s Angel Gown Program where donated wedding gowns become gowns for ‘tiny angels’, babies who have passed. The meeting/sew-in will be held from 1-4 p.m. April 20 at the UAW Local 2209 Union Hall, 5820 East 900 North, Roanoke, IN (near the GM plant). There is no admission charge.
The heart-shaped mastectomy comfort pillows provide much-needed support and relief and will be donated to the Parkview Cancer Institute. Bring a sewing machine and notions or you may choose to cut fabric or stuff pillows. We will have some fabrics, but additional cotton and flannel materials are welcome.

Mystery (Quilt) Solved!
The 2023 rendition of our popular Annual Mystery Quilt Event was a hit again! The fun began at 10 a.m. on Saturday, February 11 when the first of four clues - with printed instructions and a video - was emailed to participants, with another following every hour. By mid-afternoon we were still guessing, then came the big 'reveal'! See our version of a Chandelier quilt pictured at left. Click here for the instructions and a link to the videos or go to our Events tab and click on Mystery Quilt. We have past quilts with instructions and videos there, too. Happy quilting!
