Peggy so sorry for your loss. I always enjoyed when your mom would come to my shop and I would get to embroider her quilt squares for her. She truly enjoyed making them for everyone.
Sending you peace and comfort,

I will always remember Betty for her generosity to Christmas Outreach. Betty sewed literally hundreds and hundreds of stockings for us to fill for the children at Christmas Outreach. She would take bolts of fabric to Florida with her and cut out the stockings. When she returned to Mt. Pleasant she sewed them all up. For a few years, she sewed almost all the stockings we needed herself. What a wonderful woman!
