Quilters aid little tornado victims 

The Thurman Quilting group members express their thanks to Betty Billow for her recent donation of fabric — which was shared among the group members. Betty acquired the fabric from her father Bob Mosher Sr. who recently passed away. Bob was an exceptional quilter, and Betty knew the members of the group would make good use of the fabric.

The group found a fitting use for this fabric. A few days after the tornado hit Oklahoma, Fons & Porter, a quilting supplies company, asked quilters to make lap robes, baby quilts and pillow cases for children of Moore who had endured the violent tornado and were in need of bedclothes to cuddle up in and feel safe.

Thurmanite Carol Rounds saw this mention of the Quilts for Kids project on the company’s website, and she passed on the information to the other club members, and they decided to join the cause and craft the requested items.

On June 16 the women of the Thurman Quilt Club brought the quilts they made and readied them to ship off to the “Quilts for Kids” headquarters in Pennsylvania. Our Hats off to all you amazing Thurmanites!

The Thurman Quilting group holds their meetings every Monday from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Thurman Town Hall, and people are welcome to join in. Bring your knitting, sewing, or quilting projects and make some new friends. For more information, contact Myra at 623-2633.
