Farmhouse Community Quilters

A Typical Day at the Farmhouse Community Quilters

We are very productive, and all our monthly work days are a lot of fun.  Everybody is so enthusiastic, picking through what we have of fabrics and donated "orphan blocks", and it is amazing how nice all the quilts get to be.  We get together at 10 am and work through the morning, then always have a wonderful pot luck lunch with lots of food and even more laughter.  In the afternoon the work continues, and most people take home a project or two to work on at home untill the next time.  Everybody is welcome to join us.  No expertise needed, just willingness to come and participate.  Some people prefer to bring their own sewing machines, but there are 4 machines here all the time, and anybody can use them.   Recently we have also started putting together kits of quilt tops for the members that don't have the opportunity to come out on our work days.  The kits are taken to our Heritage meetings, and we have lots of willing members taking them home and returning finished quilt tops.  Others are taking home quilts to attach and finish the binding.

Beginning in the Fall of 2009, The Farmhouse Community Quilters began the first quilting day.  We started with 5 quilters. Some of our quilt days we now have up to 14 quilters.

We have also delivered quilts to victims of fire, illness and other traumas upon request.
