My husband's high school has a reunion every 5 years - he enjoys them; I, however, was hesitant not knowing anyone. The first one - many years ago, turned out to be great fun. I met an old friend from college married to a high school classmate of my husband AND a number of quilters. Needless to say, I've looked forward to them ever since.
She especially loves making quilts for veterans and has a group she heads up for this purpose. The ladies meet regularly - all have different jobs and ones they love to do. Some do the piecing, some the quilting and so on. Donna does the most tedious (I think) as she prepares the fabric - washing, ironing and cutting to organize them into kits to give out.
