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.
The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, September 17th at the Levy County Quilt Museum. We had several volunteers with Haven Hospice in Chiefland with us for lunch. They’re working on making gowns for staff workers that go into patient’s rooms. With the Covid virus, the staff needs a new gown each time they enter a patient’s room. The volunteers have taken over our kitchen tables for cutting and adapting the design of the gown. The gowns are being made from clean used sheets and other fabrics. They would appreciate your support and if you could volunteer to help them with the assembly of the gowns. This will be an ongoing project for them. You can even work from home sewing the gowns together.
We’re keeping our fingers crossed that the guys from Lancaster will be with us soon. The Department of Corrections plans to allow friends and family in for visits in October. We hope that means we can have our guys back.
One day this week, we opened a tote that had been dropped off last week. Much to our surprise, there were numerous pieced quilt tops. All were variations of scrappy quilts. Scraps make such lovely quilts.
We hope to plan a visit from The Old Sewing Machine Man after the snowbirds return. We’ll let you know more later on.
