2022 07-July 2022-07 Lake Miona Quilters Remember when we hosted a group of nine young, enthusiastic sewers on July 19th for Camp Villages? Our chapter had never hosted Camp Villages before, and we had such a great time teaching the “hot dog” pillow case method to these young campers. Each one left with a completed pillowcase and a huge smile on their face. It was a great morning teaching some new skills to some of our residents' grandchildren. Could they be future quilters?

Bingo games and prizes helped pass the time, along with lively conversation with friends. It was a wonderful day!
