Each year Ben Franklin Crafts celebrates Worldwide Quilting Day by bringing the community together and assembling quilts for donation.
Donations of quilting fabric, batting, threads and backings are used by volunteers throughout the weekend. All finished quilts are then donated to local charities and organizations to help those in need.
