Stitched With Love
Stitched With Love had its monthly meeting on Sept. 18, 2018. It was a working meeting, cutting the batting for the quilt kits for members to take home and sew. After cutting the batting, there was a short meeting, a time of fellowship and refreshments.
There were a total of 18 ladies at the meeting, which included a couple of new ladies, which is the largest attendance we have had so far.
"I want to thank all of the ladies who continually support us sewing the quilts, making the hats, and pillows," Cinda Woolridge said. "Thanks to all of the members who returned their quilts and hats."
In five months, members of the club have donated 251 quilts, 423 hats, and 132 pillows to Arkansas Children's Hospital at Little Rock.
"We are appreciative of having the ACH Northwest Springdale where we can take the items and they will transport them to Little Rock for us," Woolridge said.
Stitched With Love will have a booth at the Pea Ridge Mule Jump, Saturday, Oct. 13. There will be a Blackhawk Quilt made by Diane McCoy and a three-dimensional wooden bowl made by Darrel Wooldridge to be sold through a silent auction. Bidding will end at 3 p.m. Oct. 13th and the highest successful bidder will be contacted at that time. We will have other new items for sale that have been donated, along with food items. Hope to see you there.
A special shout out to Dennis Lowe for the hats that he makes for the Arkansas Children's Hospital. Thanks to a couple of husbands who are working behind the scenes to support SWL with their time and talents also.

The next meeting will be at 9:30 a.m. Oct. 17, 2018, in Mt. Vernon Presbyterian Church, 1300 North Davis St., Pea Ridge, Ark.
