Oh my goodness! The quilters and sewers will be back to the Ranch soon! Our room has been a little on the empty side but not totally thanks to Jean Handlen, Lou Downey and Dottie Welsh! These three ladies have kept the machines whirring on Monday and Friday mornings almost all summer. We are all looking forward to cooler temps outside, but if you join us to sew it’s cool in the CAC Studio 2! So come on down; we have lots of room.

For those who are not familiar with the Robson Ranch Material Girls, here is a little about us. We welcome all residents and their house guests to join us. You can visit for two times before we collect your dues, which are $20 per year. With that money we purchase fabric and supplies to make comfort and charity quilts. Comfort quilts are given to our own Robson Ranch residents who have a serious illness or lose a spouse. Please contact Bea Pressler at 520-858-5379 if you know of someone you feel might need one. This year our charity is The Chemo Center that one of our members had used a few years ago. We also have an ongoing charity, The Senior Apartments in Eloy, making quilts for the new residents there after they move in. There are 30 apartments in all there.

Our 2015 fundraiser is a queen sized quilt called Nature’s Jewels. We are selling tickets for it; stop by the CAC and see it. It’s absolutely gorgeous! Tickets can be purchased from us in the CAC Studio 2, or from Dottie Welsh at 520-705-1667 or Bea Pressler at 520-858-5379.

We do lots of member-taught projects during our business year, which is November through April, always optional, of course. Come and sew with us; we have a lot of fun!
