The public is invited to watch and learn as 100 quilters from around the Triangle come together for 2009 Quiltfest – Quiltmaking for a Cause to be held in Bay 7 on Saturday, March 21, 2009 from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm.
Organized by the Durham-Orange Quilters Guild, onlookers will be able to view the many stages of quiltmaking as these groups volunteer their creative efforts for a day to cut, piece, sew and stitch quilts and quilted items which will be donated to various groups throughout the Triangle for fundraising purposes.
Groups that will be recipients of some of the items quilted during the Quiltfest include the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle, Soldiers Injured in Iraq, Memory Quilts (for the parents of child organ donors), Duke Pediatric Hematology-Oncology, UNC Pediatric Hematology-Oncology, Hurricane Katrina victims, and Healthy Families of Durham – Child and Parent Support Services.
The event is FREE and open to the public.
