June News Letter from Ellen's Quilting Corner
Hello Sunshine and Warm Weather!
Time to start thinking fun summer sewing but before you do have you had your machine cleaned recently? After sewing all those warm flannel projects your machine builds up with fuzz and lint and over time it can start to affect your stitches. Bring your machine in for a little TLC or as some customers say "It is time for my machines spa day".
We are gearing up for our summer Saturday project classes and Jenny has been busy making samples and getting things ready.

Quilts of Valor
Our local QOV group will meet here at Ellen's on Thursday June 21st, at 9:00.
This group of ladies donate their time making quilts for veterans. They are always welcoming new people to join this local chapter. A quilt to a veteran really can make a difference to them. I have heard so many stories of quilts being presented to a veteran and their responses are so overwhelming its unbelievable. So, please, stop in on the 21st of June. See what it is all about.
