Comforting Quilts Workdays

Comforting Quilts has resumed its monthly workdays at the Mill End Store in Milwaukie.

 

Our workdays are always held on the Wednesday preceding the monthly general meetings, so mark your calendar with these dates: November 9th, December 7th, January 4th, February 8th, and March 8th. We meet at 9:30 in the upstairs workroom that is accessed via a door on the store’s loading dock, and work until 2:00 with a break for lunch. We have a variety of workstations and encourage new members to try their hands at several. 

 

These workdays are a vital event every month because this is when we have many hands to help moving up to 30 quilts through the processes of layering, serging, turning, and topstitching. Most of them will then be tied, so we have one of the larger quilts on a frame, being tied.  There will also be volunteers designing kits in various sizes, using our own library of patterns, and pulling fabrics from our storage area.  There is a loyal core of attendees who work every month, but there are others who join us when they are able. We welcome newcomers and make sure that everyone’s energy and talents are put to good use.
