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. We occasionally have classes for small groups. We prefer to teach one on one. The volunteers are happy to share their knowledge. Call or email for more information.
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.
Well we’re at three weeks being closed and we’re all ok. I guess the expression “it won’t be as long as it has been” works for us now. Thanks goodness for phones and internet for keeping us in touch with each other. \
From Countyoffice.org, did you know that there are two Museums in Levy County. Which means with almost 40,000 people in 1118 square miles of Levy County, we’re 6th of the 67 counties in Museums per capita and 42ndof 67 counties in Museums per square mile. It’s amazing what kind of stuff is on the internet. I don’t know where or how they came up with these numbers. The Cedar Key Historical Museum is the other Museum. I guess the Museum at the State Park in Cedar Key is considered part of the State Park and not a Museum. I probably have too much free time.
We had a donation of quilt books and material one day this week. Then later in the week someone left us several bags of fictional books. After just so much quilting, television, internet, we fall back to reading. We appreciate both. A couple of volunteers took a box of books to share with family members.
Still trying to find the right pattern for face mask. I found that face masks are a great way to use up some of your quilt scraps. The muslin backing makes a thick mask and the quilt binding that’s left over works great for the mask ties. Two 40 inch strips is a good size for mask binding. Using fabric loops for the ears could lead to stretching and each face is different so a “seal” might not be achieved. By using ties, each mask can be snug against the face.
Stay safe. Hope all of you quilters are using your scraps to make face mask.
We love our customers, so feel free to visit during normal business hours.
