2. Come to the garage sale on Saturday, September 20, 2014, between 10 am and 5 pm. The sale will be held at The Quilted Hill, 7601 NE Blackburn Rd, Yamhill, OR.

Hope to see you there.

Quilts donated to Camp Erin

Quilts for Camp ErinThirty of the sixty kids attending a special summer camp for grieving children will receive quilts this summer made by CCQ members. We made the quilts for Camp Erin, where young people learn to grieve and heal following the death of a loved one. Camp Erin is a national program funded by the Moyer Foundation. Camps are held in 45 locations in the U.S. and Canada. The camp is free for kids aged 6 to 17; funding comes from the Moyer Foundation and local groups. Oregon’s Camp Erin is administered by the Providence Foundation and takes place this year at Camp Kuratli in Boring, OR, August 15-17.
