Thank you so very
Ann O'Brien (our president) and her daughter, Sue McIver (our 2nd
vice president) have two loved ones who are
being deployed to
Afghanistan in March 2010 with the 1136th Transportation Unit from
Calais, Bangor and Sanford. Sue has come up with an idea for
guild members to make pillowcases for the men and women—all 177 of
them. The cases could be made with Maine wildlife fabric and this
way these brave men and women could take a bit of Maine with them
when they go. Wouldn't it be a nice thank you to them for all they
do for us and our country?"
was the request sent all over Maine in the fall of 2009.
Instead of receiving 177 pillowcases to give to the troops, Mary Ann
and Sue received over 1,000 and were deeply touched by the caring
quilters in Maine. They would like to thank everyone who sent
pillowcases. You surpassed their every hope and they couldn't
have done it without the quilters of Maine. Again, Thank you!
