  • 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?

            Yes!

            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.

            Respectfully,

              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!

                Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

                I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

                This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

                I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

                Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

                How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...

                I am very glad to hear this and that Fox will look into the issue. Hopefully, they can do some things to try to make it easier to copy patterns.

                First I didn't mean to stir up a hornet's nest. Sorry for that. I will share that Kaylee Schofield reached out to me after my post (not sure if this forum or Facebook. From my past experience with her, she cares. I do believe she will address this issue. I do not think she is the type of person...
