Quilts for Veterans!

Representatives from the Multifaith Housing Project visited The Country Quilter this morning, Nov 16, to present a plaque of recognition for the many quilts donated to our veterans. Suzanne and Sue were pleased to thank Diana, Deborah and Ann personally, and extended the thank you to all who contributed.

Touch Quilt Workshop

There is a need for touch quilts again! These special quilts can help calm those with dementia. You don’t need to be a quilter to help with this project, just a sewer. All materials are provided, just bring your machine, scissors, thread, and a willingness to help.

Jane Roszell is the instructor, she comes with great expertise, patience and fabrics! Cost is FREE, if your quilt is donated back to the shop for distribution to area long term care centers, otherwise $20. Come and make a quilt to donate, in the spirit of the season.
