We meet every Thursday morning at the Museum. Ladies work on handquilting in the frame, working on their own projects or projects for the Club to help raise funds for the Museum. The volunteers are happy to share their knowledge. Call or email for more information. We're always looking for volunteers.
We are very happy to accept donations of fabric, including scraps and unfinished projects, books or any craft items. These donations help us keep the Museum open.
We enjoy a potluck lunch every Thursday, so stop by with a covered dish and join us for lunch.
We’ve had a good week at the Levy County Quilt Museum. Cheryl Zink from St. Petersburg sent us two quilts that were made by church ladies in Worthington Indiana for her grandmother, Zona Carson after their home was destroyed by a fire. We are happy to have these quilts and to know something of their history. We’ll get them up when Lancaster returns. I wish we could do ladders but we’re safer on the ground. Thanks Cheryl for sharing your family quilts with us.
On Wednesday several bags of fabric and books were brought in. I’m happy to report the books and magazines are out on shelves and ready to go to their new home. Thanks for thinking of us.
We’ve been getting in several local and out of area first time visitors. So very glad you found us. Some will be back bringing friends to see our Sieglinde Shoen Smith collection.
Tuesday’s are spent measuring fabric and trying to get the fabric organized which means we’ve managed to find a lot of scraps we’ve aside to deal with later. It’s later so now we have several bags of scraps for someone looking for scraps.
If you’re in the tri-county area, look for the “The Hidden Coast Magazine – The Last of Old Florida” that can be found in racks around the area. It highlights businesses in the Big Bend Area. We have a 2 page display of Sieglinde Schoen Smith’s quilts. Hopefully we and other businesses in the area will be discovered
