  • Charity Quilt Money Presented

    Hi everyone,
    Here is a photos of Alan Giagnocavo, president of Fox Chapel Publishing and Publisher of SSW&C (left) presenting a check for $919.75 to Donald Dentler, a member of the Zembo Shrine as well as a Board of Governor's Member for the Shriners Hospitals for Children in Philadelphia, PA. The Philly hospital focuses on spinal cord injuries and is one of the top in the country at repairing those sorts of injuries. The money represents 1/2 the total revenue from the pieces auctioned off in addition to the Charity Quilt.

    Great job everyone!!!!

        Thanks for the picture, Bob. It's nice to know everyone's work (especially yours and Neal's) has been put to such a good purpose.

        Now, if I get myself a funny hat do you think people might give me large checks too?

            I'm also glad I was part of this.
            Kudos to all participants, direct & indirect.

            What we have accomplished is something we can all be proud of, and although I was a little sad that the quilt did not bring in more money, I'm glad it did bring in something at all. Some kid somewhere will benefit from it, and that is what's important.

            Congrats, and I hope to share the pleasure with you again.

              If you wear a funny hat AND grow a beard, I'll send you a check Gill!

              THANKS for the post Bob, makes it all worthwhile!

                SLRA does a “spot” check. He’s lucky I’m keeping him around. It was free with a purchase at harbor freight. When people pick up a basket to examine, usually first time customers, they inspect everything for glue ups, drill holes, etc. of course, I don’t think half of them know what they are...

                Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

                Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...

                Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets. And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight...
