LQG Library Resource
One of the excellent resources the LQG members have available for their use is a very well stocked Library of over 500 quilting books. A small sample of this resource is displayed by the Library Committee at the guild's monthly meetings. You can find the Library information on the Website's Membership page (scroll down to the Library information), or you can click here for the most current list of books in the collection. If you would like to request books from the library and have them available for you at the next meeting, contact either Kathy Spitsen or Joni Sauter.

Lincoln Covid Sewists

From Sheila Green, Lincoln Covid Sewists Coordinator:

August 30, 2021
The Covid Risk Dial in Lancaster County is again in the mid-orange range, or high risk of Covid-19 spread. We again have an indoor mask mandate in effect through the month of September. Last week, I received requests for over 1,300 masks for preschoolers! One daycare has 44 new 2 year olds that now need to wear masks. We are focusing on masks for children who are too young to be vaccinated and who need our cloth specially made masks for their small faces.

If you haven’t previously made masks, please join us as the need is great! I have kits available for you to sew. Contact Sheila Green at sheilagreen@windstream.net or 402-440-3127 if you need patterns (primarily preschoolers with adjustable ear loops). Masks can be dropped off in the tote on my porch, 7950 Cooper Ave. Please include your name with the masks.
