Quilting Club meets 2nd & 4th Tuesdays at 1 p.m. This month's dates are February 12 and 26
Quilt Tying Help Wanted! Every Tuesday morning from 9:00 to noon, the Quilt Tying group tie quilts to give away to people in need. When finished they donate them to many different local charities. If you have a few spare hours on Tuesday morning, they could really use your help. A few of the ladies have moved or retired. Stop in and see how you can help. No experience needed.
New Quilt Display
The quilt is called Buck of the Month Quilt. Each month for a year you get a pattern and so at the end of the year you have a quilt top. Sherrie Cottrell chose these bright colors not knowing the pattern (purple and fuscia). She pieced it and Marlene Williams machine quilted it. Look for her trademark rooster hidden in the quilting of the quilt. Sherrie finished this in 2007. Check out this quilt in our conference room during the months of July and August.
WIC Baby Blankets
Babies who benefit from these talents are part of this area's Women Infant Children (WIC) Program and the goal of the 30" x 40" quilts is to promote breastfeeding. The next WIC work/fun day will be Thursday, May 23 at The Gathering Place from 9:00 to 3:00. Volunteers who would like to share their talents to sew, cut, quilt, tie or bind are welcome.
