    A girlfriend of mine has an Aunt that works at a moving company and called me last week. She was so excited. A woman had moved and had given all this material to the company because she was tired of moving it. I bought the lot of it for $100.00. I could not believe how much was there. There was 3 huge boxes full of items, 1 full of nothing but material. The other 2 boxes had rulers, mats, and even some pieces of the Handi Quilter. This is not to mention the patterns and jelly rolls and charm packs. I am trying to get some more people to learn quilting at my church and with this bounty I can get them started.

    What a blessing. Enjoy your goodies. It would be wonderful if you could pass on the gift of quilting to the other members of the church. Why don't you suggest everyone work on a quilt together so that it can be raffeled. It would be a good way to get everyone involved and at the same time raise money for the church funds.
