Curious about How to Make a Quilt? All Quilters Welcome September 13th Yankee Quilters Meeting

FRANKLIN - All quilters and area residents interested in learning this beautiful craft are invited to the September 13th meeting of Yankee Quilters Guild in Franklin. The group meets at Emma’s Quilt Cupboard in the Horace Mann Plaza, East Central Street at 7 p.m.

Projects, quilting challenges, trips and plans for the year will be discussed. A “show and tell” of work completed over the summer by members will close the meeting. Beginners who are interested in learning more about quilts are welcome. First meeting for nonmembers is always free; annual membership is $35 for the initial year.

Throughout the year, the organization’s members make “comfort quilts” for those in need. In the past year, volunteers have completed dozens of comfort quilts which have been donated to local service agencies, relief efforts in Kentucky and Colorado, and individuals facing personal challenges. Anyone with basic sewing skills can help with these charity quilts throughout the year. The guild also supports other charitable work, provides educational programs on the art and craft of quilt making and provides a supportive network for quilters.

For more information about the organization, please follow Yankee Quilters’ Facebook page.
