October meeting tidbits

Cary Langhorne Caldwell

Cary Langhorne Caldwell of Charlotte was the speaker at our meeting tonight. She described how she was born in to a family of artists, and tried many different media before finding her place as a fiber artist. She shared her quilts, which include many portraits of her two young sons and other family members.

A few of the Project Linus quilts made this month by members of LNQ.

Several members turned in small quilts for Project Linus this month. Coleen Thrailkill (shown above, center) organizes our group’s efforts for Project Linus , a charity that seeks to “provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer ‘blanketeers.’”

Some of our members created 45 customized Halloween treat bags for children who are hospitalized at Presbyterian Hospital over the Halloween weekend.
