Happy Chemo

Wednesday, April 6th

10 AM - 1 PM


1 - 4 PM


4 - 7 PM

Class Fee: $5.00 per session

Emily Bailey, from Aunt Em's quilt patterns, will be here in the shop to help us with our sew in. The Utah Quilt Guild's charity this year is Happy Chemo, and the purpose is to make small to lap sized quilts that will be given to chemotherapy patients after being displayed at the Quilt Fest in September.

Happy Chemo's motto is:

You can read about their story at www.HappyChemo.com.

Bring your own scraps, or just use ours. Bring your sewing machine and basic sewing supplies and spend the day with us and Emily as we all work together making blocks of the same pattern. We hope to make enough blocks for several quilts. The cost to participate will be $5.00 per session, which will go toward the backings and machine quilting of the quilts. Emily will provide the batting, which has been donated to the cause. At the end of the day, we will you one of our Wooden Nickels which is worth $5 here at the Quilt Cottage. What a deal! We will have treats to eat, door prizes and some special sales in the shop for when you need to take a break from sewing! Please join us for what should be a very fun day.

As many of you know, Wendy's husband, Ryan, is undergoing chemo and dialysis at this time, so we are very aware of what a wonderful cause this is, and are excited to host this event.
