Working together on making something useful while creating friendships isn’t a thing of the past. If you would like to learn this new skill and join a community of enthusiastic quilters, please come to the Quilt Making for Beginners Information Class at Howell Branch on August 18.
For centuries, people had to make their own clothing, blankets, and linens. Women would gather to sew, working on individual garments or together on bigger projects while building lifelong friendships. Today, we can buy what we need at our local stores or online. However, our need to spend time with other people - working on a common interest - still brings joy into our lives.
