Sticher Show at the library
The Cross Timbers stitch guild were sharing their quilts with the public this past week, Jan. 14. The members gathered together at the public library in Olney, displaying their quilts in one of the back rooms of the Library.
The Cross Timbers stitch club has many members, somewhere in between 15-20 and would be more than happy for others to join.
“We meet once a month at the First Baptist Church,” said one of the original members of the guild. They are currently having a competition amongst themselves to see who can make the best quilt, with the end result being that they supply quilts to the hospitals for the newly born babies. The members also do bags and blankets for the kids going from foster care into new homes.
They meet on the second Monday of every month, at First Baptist of Olney at 9 a.m. The guild usually meets throughout that entire day, or until they finished sewing for the day.
One of the members stated, “We have done quilts for turning points, we have done quilts for the chamber of commerce that have been auctioned off, we have also made quilts for the one armed dove hunt, and the frozen golf tournament.” “We always like for new people to come join us and sew. We love the fellowship and to be of service.
The Cross Timbers stitch guild has been around for almost twenty years, and they look forward to many more new members in the years to come.
