I can’t think of anything that will keep you warmer on a cold winter night than a quilt. I can remember when I was a kid, and all the ladies in the neighborhood were always working on quilts, saving every scrap of cloth they could find, it seemed almost non stop. I don’t know how many ladies still make quilts, however, I do know they make wonderful gifts, and are in constant demand. That’s why I’m excited for what happens this coming Thursday, March 20th, from 10-3 p.m. at the Mariner Mall.

It’s the HCE Quilt-A-Thon, where volunteers make comforters for kids in crisis. All volunteers are welcome to help as much as you can. If you have any of the following items, please bring them along with you.

Needles for tying, scissors, juvenile fabrics (especially flannel and quilt batting), and small or unfinished quilts, either 36X36 or 38X44, measuring tape, sweing machine (with bobbin and thread), and yourslef and a friend..

Have some fun knowing you are going to keep a kid in crisis warm. It’s a great cause.
