Quilts Amongst the Books II

QuiltsBe sure to make a trip to the Chemung County Library District’s Steele Memorial Library this November to see the beautiful quilt exhibit “Quilts Amongst the Book II.”  These quilts are incredible works of art, each one individually created.

The display is sponsored by the Piecemaker Quilters of Elmira.   This guild began in 1980 and its membership is comprised of 63 very talented ladies.  Besides sharing ideas and techniques, as well as honing their skills together, they also choose various community projects to work on.  This year for example, they have made and distributed to the local hospitals bereavement blankets to the neonatal units, walker caddies to long term care units, and are currently making underarm pillows for breast cancer patients.

The show “Quilts Amongst the Books II” at Steele Memorial Library is comprised of 75 projects from full size quilts to minis, to wearables, and accessories. The exhibit runs from November 2nd -November 29th.  There is also a public reception, November 7th, 7:00 PM-9:00 PM. Please come see the library truly transformed into a wonderland!
