The Date Has Changed for the Old Fashioned Quilting Bee!

We have changed the date for the quilting bee from 24 March to 21 April 2018.  The hours and venue remain the same.  So make sure to update your calendar!  AND just to recap for those of you who might have missed the original post…

“In an effort to preserve the quilting process and the lost art of hand quilting, area quilters are invited to participate in an old fashioned quilting bee on 21 April 2018, from 10 am to 4 pm, at the Watoga State Park recreation building.  This rare event (thanks to a Calvin Price grant) is open to anyone, including young adults, wanting to gain experience in hand quilting.  There is no charge to attend and donations are welcomed.  The large quilt we will be quilting is being donated by Ms Jean Jackson of Droop Mountain and a smaller quilt will be donated by an area quilter.  Food is pot luck.  Please don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to gather around a quilt frame, learn quilting skills from expert area hand quilters and experience an event that is quickly disappearing!  For additional information or questions, please contact Deb Ann at 304 653-4150.”
