The public is invited to a demonstration on Monday, May 5th from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. During this time, the Creative Quilter Group will be piecing and quilting and visiting with the public about the quilts and their organization.

“We do one class project a year - the rest of the time we work on our own projects,” said Nancy Richburg.  “We love to quilt, we love to teach, and beginners are welcome no matter their age or ability.”

Quilters with items on display – either piecing, quilting, embroidery, applique, or a combination – include Bertha Longoria, Shirley Mobley, Marsha Allen, Trish Gabbard, Joann Gary, Ethelyn Vernon, Sally Bird, Linda Tiffin, Annette Saucedo, Sandy Bloom, Shelda Rogers, Phil Burns, Nancy Richburg, Emma Rigsby, Betty Wells, Steven Bird and Nancy Leyendecker.

The quilting display will be showcased at Unger Memorial Library through the month of May.  Library hours are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday from 9:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. (with the exception of Memorial Day weekend).
