From our local paper, The Chronicle Jouneral.
More than 60 quilters turned out Thursday for the Thunder Bay Quilters Guild annual bee. Participants formed teams to design, cut, sew and assemble comfort quilts to be given to local nursing homes, women’s shelters, St. Joseph’s Hospice, and the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre cancer and neonatal units. The quilters donate materials, time and skills to create comfort quilts each year. Ellen Lang uses her sewing machine to make the quarter-inch seam in the quilt squares. The guild also provides quilts and teddy bears for the annual Christmas Cheer drive. To join the guild or to register for courses, visit thunderbayquilters.org.
