Quilting Club meets 2nd & 4th Tuesdays at 1 p.m.
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.
Barb Hass found this quilt at an Antique Show, wadded up in a ball on a shelf. She asked if it was for sale. The answer was "no, it's my packing blanket." She offered the guy $25 and finally sold it to her for $35. It was filthy dirty and most of the flowers were falling off. She sewed them all back on and after a few washings, got all the stains out. Her sister-in-law put a new border on it. It is her favorite of all quilts.
***If you have a quilt you would like to show in our Conference Room and have a story to go with it let Sue know. You can send her a picture and story to email@example.com
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. Volunteers who would like to share their talents to sew, cut, quilt, tie or bind are welcome.
