This year Henry Glass has donated a bolt of fabric for the blocks for next year's quilt. 
We thank our fabric companies for supporting our endeavors. 
Here's a photo of a Friendship Star block being made.  We made 60 stars to be used in next year's quilt.

We also had people sitting at sewing machines learning how to do sequencing so they could sew their name out for part of next year's signature quilt.

And we had some embroidery machines available for people to stitch out a unique design created by Herb!
  
  

Steve showed how to use the needle threader that everyone had in their goodie bags.

Students from the Neuro Science Club at Western New England University educated us on what happens when a brain gets injured.
