Before the Library moved up the hill back in 1997, there was an active quilting group which met at the library. The group created a quilt each year for which they sold raffle tickets. The proceeds went to purchase books for the Library. I'm not sure why the group disbanded, but it has been resurrected and meets in the multipurpose room several times a month. The group is completing a quilt for this year which they hope to unveil at Town elections in March. Again, raffle tickets will be sold--keep watching the local papers for details.
One member of the group told me that the design they are working on is based upon one that is found in Quilts! Quilts!! Quilts!!!: The Complete Guide to Quiltmaking by Diana McClun [746.46 MCC].
The Library has a collection of quilting books that will take you from beginning steps right through to the elements of design and color. A few of our titles include:
