Our new (refurbished) Janome 11574 was delivered today and both Linda & Diane could hardly wait to try it out. It worked beautifully--smooth and quiet AND it sewed fast enough to keep us happy. This refurbished machine only cost $115 including shipping. No, we did not use any donations given for the quilts. What we did use was the "extra" money put into the "beverage donation jar". Thanks to generous donations from volunteers for their soda, coffee or water, we collected enough to purchase the sewing machine. (See Items Needed for information on where this sewing machine was purchased)
The Warm & Natural batting used inside our quilts is purchased through EVANS STORE-Sheboygan Falls, WI and BEN FRANKLIN- Mayville, WI. The batting is sold to us at cost or slightly above cost plus shipping. Be sure to shop at these stores and let them know you appreciate their support of our troops and the Camo Quilt Project.
Our troops deserve the best. That is why our quilts are filled with 100% cotton batting. We use the Warm & Natural batting made by The Warm Company. In June The Warm Company donated 3 rolls of batting, 124" by 25 yds each. That was enough to fill 85 quilts! THANK YOU to The Warm Company.
