On Saturday, Sept. 13, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., the fourth annual, nonjuried quilt show, “Draping the Pews” will take place at the Fly Creek Methodist Church on county Route 26.
The quilt show is free and refreshments will be served. There will be a basket for those wishing to make a cash donation to the Cooperstown Food Bank. Those donating will have an opportunity to “win” a lap quilt of their choosing.
Our “silent auction” quilt this year is “Dresden Plates,” featuring Japanese inspired fabric donate to our group by a quilting friend in Rochester. It is hand and machine sewn and free motion quilted by Sally Bush of Fly Creek.
The Fly Creek Methodist Quilters meet at the church each at 10 a.m. Tuesday to create charity quilts for the Oxford Veteran’s Home, The Children’s Home of the Wyoming Conference in Binghamton, and Social Services. We have made “special request” quilts for those suffering from an illness. Pathfinder Village in Edmeston has received quilts upon request. This year, burp cloths have been added and will be given to Social Services. We have also sandwiched and finished antique quilt tops.
Anyone who has a quilt to share should contact Gail Olin at 435-2946, to arrange a drop-off time. Quilt groups are also encouraged to participate. Antique to modern, all quilts are welcome.
