Twenty area quilters met at the Library, November 13, and enjoyed a program on "raggedy quilts" given by Janet Martin. She demonstrated the process of creating blocks that would ravel and fluff along the edges, and shared hints on what not to do. A large stash of Christmas fabrics cut in fat quarters was won by Mary Wood, who also received a beaded chatelaine as a door prize. A quilting book was won by Frances Ashinhurst. The next meeting will be Dec. 11, with red, green and/or white being the theme for the fat quarters drawing.
