The Material Girls’ calendar reflects the beginning of the summer season, and so the sewing room is open for quilting/sewing on Mondays and Fridays from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The projects committee is planning some summer classes and activities; they are still in the planning stages so watch for some fun stuff to start in June. If you have any questions contact Joy Swanson at 319-759-8765, joy.p.swanson@gmail.com

Robson Ranch Material Girls delivered handmade quilts to new residents and pillowcases to all residents at the Eloy Senior Center Apartments. This was our fifth year of making quilts and pillowcases for the Eloy Senior Apartments; they were delivered by Marge Doughty, Karen Karpinski, Jane Schroer and Rebecca McKinney. The new residents and the Material Girls were also treated to some very nice refreshments from the Pinal-Gila Council for Senior Citizens.

In addition, Material Girls have made and given over 100 comfort quilts to our own residents for a serious life threatening illness or loss of a spouse.
