Ugly Quilt Project

Join us as we assemble and sew Ugly Quilts for the homeless. Check out the video below for an idea of what we're going to do. We have quilts that have been started and just need the finishing touches.


Too young to sew? Bring a Show-n-Tell item or 2 to share with the seniors! They also love easy card games or checkers!
