Spring is on its’ way…it must be time for Quilt-A-Thon at Ben Franklin Crafts!
Each year Ben Franklin Crafts celebrates National Quilting Day by bringing community volunteers together to assemble quilts for donation. This year we will be working together with our volunteers on Saturday, March 16th from 9:00am until 5:30pm and Sunday, March 17th from 10:00am until 4:30pm. Donated quilting fabric, batting, threads, and backings are put to good use by our volunteers throughout the weekend. All finished quilts are then donated to local charities and organizations to help those in need.
Our volunteers help cut, press and piece the quilts. If you are interested in volunteering, please come for as little or as long as you can. Every little bit helps! Bring along:
- your own sewing machine if you would like to work on piecing
- thread (some threads available to share, also)
We will have extension cords, irons and ironing boards, rulers, cutters and everything else that’s required to put the quilts together. If you don’t sew, we’re happy to put you to work cutting fabric, ironing, sandwiching and tying the quilts, too!
We appreciated the continued support of our customers & volunteers to make this event a meaningful community outreach. We hope you will share some of your time and talents with us to warm the hearts of our quilt recipients.
