There’s help for those stitching up a storm in Coombs for the unique heritage quilt that will help mark French Creek Community School’s 100th anniversary.
While the school and community prepare to host the big celebration May 18-21, 2012, friends of the school, with students and staff, current and former are invited to contribute a square.
One hundred squares depicting people’s memories or stories will be sewn into a memory quilt for the school.
Three work sessions are being held next week for those who would like a hand with their squares.
The two-hour sessions are at the school, Tuesday, Nov. 15 starting at 2:30 p.m., Nov. 16 at 9 a.m. and Nov. 17 at 6 p.m.
Bring your quilting package, ideas and fabric you’d like to use. There will be needles, thread, fabric, irons and ironing boards available, along with tea, coffee and cookies.
Drop by the school to pick up the required square and instructions for $5 from secretary Rose Ellen Graham. Call her at 250-248-9921, or e-mail email@example.com for more information.
