The Norris City Quilt Guild meeting was held on April 4, 2019 at the Senior Citizen Center on Main Street in Norris City. There were 25 members present and three guests. The meeting started with prayer and refreshments. Eight people finished all 12 of their UFO's (unfinished objects) for the past year.

Shaunna Scott, of Dahlgren won $220; including the $20 for this month and $200 for completing a year's worth of projects. Annual membership dues were collected in the amount $15 per person. Quilt blocks for the charity quilt are due at the May meeting. Annette Jones, of Ridgeway, delivered charity quilts to the group of young mothers at the Eldorado High School. Should members have any baby charity quilts to donate, Helen Ray-Cooper, of Norris City, will collect them until there are enough to disperse. In the past, quilts have been delivered to NICU units at area hospitals. "Show and Tell" consisted of several projects being displayed. Vickie Craddock showed her star quilt that was sewn in earth tones and was lovely. Beth Persinger, of Omaha, displayed her "Diagonal Slice Baby Quilt" for her new Grandson; completed in primary colors. Janie Delap, of Broughton, presented her blue and white star quilt. Shaunna Scott revealed her "Storm at Sea" quilt which was inspired by a pattern taught at a previous Guild meeting. Linda Johnson told about the welder's caps she has been sewing. Aleta Heern, of Carmi, presented her personalized embroidered block made by machine. Dorotha Thackrey, of Carmi, exhibited the wedding dress she made her daughter in 1984. The dress is going to be “upcycled” into a new Christsening gown for her Great-Granddaughter. Lastly, Erin Pennington, of Carmi, donated a pink and blue “Trip Around the World” baby quilt that she completed.

The next Guild meeting will be held on Thursday, May 2nd, at 6:30 p.m. at Norris City in the Senior Center.
