Thank you Barb G for allowing me to post the following article from your newsletter regarding the wonderful act of kindness and generosity of this group of beautiful women. I am so proud to be friends with these generous and talented women. All of them have families that need their care and attention, not to mention church obligations or children and grandchildren. Some of the women are still working outside the home and somehow they find time to give to their community. I wish I could say I helped with the 29 beautiful quilts but I was only able to contribute one quilt, but like they told me, even "one quilt" is appreciated. Thank you girls for your beautiful work and your big hearts, you made a lot of residents at Standing Stone Nursing home happy. The Monday Sew-in Group members are : Lorrie Brown, Katherine Capotosto, Jackie Dean, Barbara Griffiths, Verda Hopkins, Rose Johnson, Barbara Lavin, Doris Smith, Ginny Smith, Judy Webster, Melissa Wesley and Ruth Zimmerman. We would love to have you join us. We meet at the
on the second and
fourth Monday of each month. Cumberland Cove Welcome
There are others involved in the project that do not attend the Sew-In on a regular basis but thanks so much for your generosity also. In addition the women named above we also received quilt donations from the following: Verna Green, Liz Osuch, Jackie Dinse, Angie Williams and Joanna Walker.
The following is from Barb G,
On July 14, a small representation from our sew-in group presented 29 comfort donation quilts and one Quilt of Valor to the residents of Standing Stone Nursing Home in
Monterey. Our group decided to make these quilts in an
effort to give back to the
community. The following photos are
highlights of that day. The Quilt of
Valor was presented to 92 year old WWII US Navy veteran Talmage Elmus
Welch. He is not only a resident of
Standing Stone Nursing Home, but born and raised in Monterey, TN.
