Quilt Club at
Everyone is invited to the Towne Squares Quilt Club demos and displays
at the Greenville Public Library on March 18th from 9:00 to 4:00.
Librarian Rachel Brock writes “If you’ve ever wondered what goes into
making a quilt or simply love the splendor and design of quilts, then
stop in and the Towne Squares Quilt Club will be happy to answer any
question you might have about quilting.”
The Club was formed over 30 years ago by Linda McGlothin and her late
mother Leola Crowell. The business meeting is held the third
Tuesday of the month in the BRC Brick Room at 7:00 p.m. They love new
members so anyone interested in quilting is welcome.
The Club’s members span all levels of skills and experience. The
annual dues of $15 covers tools, fabric, instructions, door prizes, and
two big gift packages every July and December. Members are asked to
help with the Quilt Show which takes place every October.
This year the Club will be working on 60 baby quilts to be donated to
the Morgan’s First Gift project. Each quilt is 40X42 and made
from flannel of baby-type prints and colors. Morgan’s First Gift
is a layette given to first time mothers who are considered low income
or under privileged when they leave the hospital. It may include
pajamas, an outfit, washcloth and soap, bottles, a small toy as well as
a handmade quilt.
Being a part of a Club provides additional benefits such as friendship,
mentorship, and camaraderie. The Club auctions quilts each year
for charity and donates quilts to Hospice. For more info please see
