Bring machines, equipment, and any fabric you may have.

For those that have unfinished projects or small quilts, bring them and we’ll add to them to make into at least a twin-sized quilt.

Batting is most welcome, pieces or whole sizes.

These quilts will be hand-tied to make quick work of the quilt-making process.

Those that don’t sew should come anyway, as

cutters and pressers will be needed.

Bring a potluck dish to share.

Drinks will be furnished.

This event will be held at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church on North Main St. from 9:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.

Please use the Saratoga St. entrance.

For more information, please call Leila Tompert at 934-0878.
