Keremeos Quilters

Keremeos Quilters have been gathering for the past six years .

The group just began their fall session after a summer hiatus on September 23 at the Anglican Church in Keremeos.

“We make quilts for the community – some have been donated for use at Orchard Haven,” said Jo Sanford, who heads the group.

“We have three underway for the hospice right now.”

Describing the group as “women getting together to cut up fabric and sew it together,” Sanford said the group sometimes has a quilting expert from out of town come to speak to the group about quilting techniques.

The quilters meet every second and fourth Mondays of the month at the Anglican Church, moving the date to Tuesdays should there be a statutory holiday.

 

The group raises money through the odd quilt raffle as well as through 50- 50 draws. In January they donated a baby quilt to the first baby born in 2013.

If you are interested in joining the group, call Jo at 250-499-2316, or join the quilters at an upcoming meeting.

Sessions run from September to May.
