Nov. 1: Marketplace at Satellite Beach Schecter Center

Marketplace is held in conjunction with the Satellite Beach Founder's Day Parade. Our vendor booth is the first one inside the door at Schecter Center (South Patrick Drive). The sales items are treasures made by our members: quilts, neck coolers, microwave bowls, phone carriers, snap bags, mini wallets, zippered "keeping bags" for coins or IPods, coasters, embroidered shirts and towls and placemats, etc. - all lovely, well-made items. You could do a lot of Christmas shopping at this event, meeting local artisans in various booths and enjoying every moment. Proceeds from our sale benefit homeless and needy children here in Brevard County.

Coming Soon: The opportunity to purchase raffle tickets for a gorgeous red and black quilt featuring tulips and a very striking design made by Nancy Deibner and longarm quilted by Sheryl Milner. Proceeds will purchase shoes for homeless Brevard elementary aged children.

QAKH Quilt Distribution

Yes, we are still working on QAKH quilts for our homeless and hurting Brevard children and will be distributing the quilts the first week of November.

Click on the video below for the August quilt-in. Though the woman at the beginning is identified as Sheryl Milner, QAKH's coordinator, it is actually Margie Engel. Margie will quickly tell you that Sheryl is much better looking, and younger too! The real treat is seeing Lydia Howald, one of our senior campers.
