Upcoming Events


June - Project Horizon / Lisa's House speaker. We have a lot of comfort quilts to Lisa's House. A representative from Lisa's House will tell us about the program, how it works and what our quilts mean to their clients.
Attention: Our June Meeting will be held at 120 Varner Lane in Lexington. Please use available street parking or park in the city parking lot, behind the County Administration Bldg.

July - Service Project . Our program will be making "fidget" quilts for Alzheimer's patients. Fidget quilts are a soothing thing to do for those patients because the quilt gives them something to do. We will show some examples and talk about what is needed to make them at the April and June meetings. Http://www.with-heart-and-hands.Com/2015/01/making-fidget-quilts-for-alzheimers.html
