Challenge Quilts:  Keep working on your challenge quilts. Please note the BIG REVELATION has been changed to Wednesday, September 18th. Please keep your finished quilts until then. We are all looking forward to seeing what everyone has done with their challenge fabrics.
 
Can You Help??  We are looking for new ideas for fundraising for Firehouse Quilts. As you know, batting is our major expense. If you know of places to obtain grants and/or monetary donations, please contact a Board member and your help with the application process is appreciated. Thank you!
 
Speaking of Batting......  If you have small pieces of batting from other quilts you have made, you can put the edges together and zigzag them together for the next quilt. Once the quilt is quilted, you can't tell the batting was pieced and this helps us be even more efficient in using our supplies!
 
Volunteer Appreciation:  Our fall volunteer appreciation event will be held October 18th (10 am - 8 pm) and 19th (10 am - 5 pm) at the Roxborough Community Center located at 6237 Roxborough Drive, Roxborough, CO 80125. Dinner Friday night and lunch on Saturday will be provided by FHQ. Please bring a small snack item to share. RSVP to Jacque no later than October 5th by calling 303-791-7239 or emailing firehousequilts@ecentral.com .
 
Furnace Tune-up:  We are participating in the furnace tune-up fundraiser again this year with Applewood Plumbing Heating and Electric. This runs through the month of September and for $99 (normally $199) a technician will come to your home and do a 14-point system check. When it comes time to pay, you make your check out to Firehouse Quilts. It doesn't get any easier than that!
 
Therapeutic Recreation Fall Dance:  We are supporting the Therapeutic Recreation group again this fall by making and donating quilts and other items for their fall dance. The dance takes place the end of October so quilts will be due at the October 16th Sew Day. Thank you in advance for your support of this wonderful group again this year.
 
Scissors Sharpening Service:  It you have scissors needing to be sharpened, Above and Beyond offers this service. Please contact Christie or Jacque before bringing them in so a date can be set up with Don at the store.
 
Sewing Machine Maintenance:  Routine sewing machine maintenance is available through the store.  Machines may be dropped off during Sew Day and you will be notified when it is ready to pick up (no earlier than 1-2 weeks). Please call the store (720-440-9654) with questions.
