Local Quilters’ Work Displayed

 

Solano County Library celebrates Black History Month by exhibiting the work of the Quilting Sisters at its eight branches.  The Quilting Sisters group has been gathering for fifteen years, and its members teach, encourage and support each other as they produce their work.  They have donated quilts to many non-profit organizations, including Mission Solano and U.C. Davis Medical Center.   To those in need, the group’s needlework provides comfort and a tangible reminder that a small group of committed individuals can and do make a difference in the lives of others.

 

The Quilting Sisters will also present a hands-on quilting workshop for elementary school-age children and families at the Suisun City Library on Saturday, February 6 from 11:00 until 3:00.  The program is free, but space is limited, and children under the age of 10 must be accompanied by a caregiver.  For more information, call the library at 866-572-7587.

 

Don’t miss the opportunity to visit your favorite branches in February to see the displays, and check the Library’s webpage at solanolibrary.com for more African American History Month programs.
