February 24, 2018: Quiltathon
The Concord Piecemakers’ annual Quiltathon will be held at St. Matthew’s Church, 435 Central Street in Acton on February 24 from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. We will prepare comfort quilts to be given to cancer patients, shelter dwellers, refugees, hospice patients and other folks in need of a “Quilter’s Embrace.” The guild supplies lunch
(deli sandwiches and a fruit platter, coffee, tea and water) and we ask you to bring something to share for dessert or snack or a side dish.. We also ask you to bring a finished quilt top (any size, though twin bed, lap quilts and kids quilts are in demand), at the Quiltathon it will be either tied or quilted. Please bring an appropriate backing so we can finish it! Feel welcome to bring a friend/relative/stranger who wants to help. Stay all day or only for an hour, we take whatever time you are able to give.
In brief, please bring:
1) A quilt top with an appropriate backing. Please measure the top and pin the size to the two pieces. You can tie them together.
2) A dish to share with a bunch of hungry quilters
3) Your name tag for those of us who are too old to remember names
4) Your smile
February 3, March 3, and April 7 are the upcoming Open Sew Days at the Harvard Congregational Church, 5 Still River Road, Harvard, MA 01451.
Time: 9-3. Come for the whole time, or just part of it. Take the elevator to the second floor.
As a “thank you” to the Church for donating this space for us, please bring a non-perishable food item to be sent to Loaves and Fishes, our local food pantry.
