At the end of the Christmas party, Santa (Becky Pendergraph’s husband) told us about a young serviceman from Beale who had been injured and we agreed to give him one of the Wounded Warrior quilts. I have presented many quilts for the guild because we have made hundreds of quilts for needy folks and this sounded “pretty routine” to me. Little did I suspect how different this presentation would be. Lisa and her sister and I drove to the base to meet Becky and Janet (two of the 3-team Christmas party ladies). We were told to meet there about noon but soon found out that things were delayed. The young airman we would be presenting the quilt to had been part of the police unit at Beale AFB. After sustaining injuries in Afghanistan, Philip Newlyn was sent to Walter Reed Hospital in Washington, D.C. and continues his treatment there. As part of the larger Wounded Warri- ors.org program, Phillip was flown to Sacramento airport to spend Christmas with his parents who live in Madera and that flight was delayed. We waited in the parking lot at Beale for Airman Newlyn to arrive as a crowd of servicemen and women assembled to greet him and the news media took pictures. Escorted by CHP, amid red lights and sirens, the young airman arrived. From his parents’ truck, a thin, 20 year old wounded airman was helped into a nearby wheelchair and waved to the crowd. The general spoke a few words about his bravery and the squadron commander welcomed him back to Beale. The VQG ladies presented the beautiful strip- pieced, red, white and blue quilt and I found it difficult to say anything more than “we thank you for your service to our country”. Lisa had a photograph of him that he autographed for us as a momentum for the guild. Phillip was gracious and thankful for the quilt----- though nowhere near as thankful as I am that there are servicemen like Phillip Newlyn who are willing to give the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms that we enjoy. Thank you to each member who has worked on these many quilts, especially those for the wounded soldiers, and for all the quilts that are given to needy souls. May all those recipients, like Phillip, find comfort in knowing that the VQG appre- ciates and values their service to our country.

Respectfully submitted, Kim Buzolich (notes submitted by Sharon Easter) VQG CHALLENGE Don't get this challenge mixed up with our UFO challenge--this one is due at the FEBRUARY VQG meeting! For those of you who bought a kit, we hope you can find the time to finish a project to enter. You will have to deliver the finished project to me at the February VQG meeting. They will be displayed at the meeting so everyone can vote on them. The results of the vote will not be revealed until the Quilt Show in March--oh, the anticipation! Here are the rules of the challenge--please follow them to the letter so you're not disqualified! Remember our theme: "Threads Of Friendship". 1. You must use at least half of each of the fabrics in your kit. 2. You must use your thread in some way on the front of your project so we can see it. 3. Your project can be no larger than 120" in circumference. For example a 30" s 30" wall hanging (or its equivalent) would be the largest project possible. There is no minimum size to feel free to make a smaller project. 4. You may embellish your project in any way you wish. 5. You may add up to 3 additional fabrics to the ones in your kit, no more. 6. Your project should have a label on the back which includes your name and the kit number (which is listed on the bottom of your box). Remember to fill out a entry form for our quilt show for your challenge quilt so we can have a beautiful display of all the challenge quilts. Exact measurements aren't necessary, just estimate the approxi- mate finished size. If you have questions, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org ~~Diane Steele~~ UFO CHALLENGE Happy New Year, everyone! Hope your holidays were fantastic! At the January 27th meeting, we will have the latest "reveal" of our UFO challenge. If you signed up to finish your project, please bring it and show it to everyone. If your #3 project is completely finished, you will be in a drawing for some fun prizes. A note to those of you who are not currently involved in this UFO challenge, you can join ANY TIME! All you need to do is give me a list with a description of 10 unfinished projects you have in your sewing stash. We'll pick a number every other month and you have 2 months to finish the project that correlates to that number on your list. There's no penalty for NOT finishing it--you'll just have to look at that UFO for another month! See you on the 27th! ~~Diane Steele~~ VQG AFFILIATE MEMBERS A Sewing Machine Shop B & B Machine Quilting Cabin Fever Quilt Shoppe Cloth Carousel 1220 Franklin Avenue 25770 Clark Avenue 826 Lincoln Way 9 Main Street Yuba City, CA 95991 Orland, CA 95963 Auburn, CA 95603 Winters, CA 95694 Sue Laird Beverly Woodward Patti & Don Henderson Jan Bawart 530-671-6568 530-865-4625 530-885-5500 530-795-2580 By appointment only Bobbie McNary 530-886-8065 email@example.com Call for location 530-865-2254 cabinfeverquiltshoppe@ www.clothcarousel.com ascendance.net 15% off customer appreciation 15% off end of bolt—check day or 10% guild discount website for in store specials Fabrics on Mill Street FloLin Quilting Howells Sewing & Vacuum Linda Ballard & Co. 115 Mill Street 173 La Mirada Avenue 2344 Grass Valley Hwy 22526 Bridlewood Lane Grass Valley, CA 95945 Oroville, CA 95966 Auburn, CA 95603 Palo Cedro, CA 96073 530-273-9386 Florine Krone & Linda Hersh Mary Lynn Matthews Linda Ballard firstname.lastname@example.org 530-589-1114 530-885-9624 530-547-3461 www.fabricsonmillst.com email@example.com 916-780-9624 530-547-2061 (Fax) 10% off all fabric purchases to Have 11 quilts done at regular firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com guild members price, 12th quilt will be done www.howellsew.com www.letsquilt.com free. 10% to guild members on no- tions, feet, and books.
