Christian Quilters have show Feb. 22

Saturday, February 15, 2003

"Winnie the Pooh's Search for the Quilting Bee" is the theme of the Quilt show that will be held at the Harmony United Methodist Church from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Feb. 22.

The event is sponsored by the Clay County Christian Quilters. Food, drinks and handmade articles, provided by the Quilt Club and the United Methodist Women, will be sold. Admission is $3.

Over 100 quilts will be displayed and one will be sold by a sealed bid.

The 12 members meet weekly, bring a pitch in lunch and quilt the day away. Others provide quilt tops and pay the ladies to mark and do the quilting.

"We raise money to give to different missions," said Mayme Johnson who is president of the philanthropic organization.

They have done five or six quilts since the club started a year and a half ago. The quilt top of the bedcover to be sold was done by Mayme Johnson and the club members did the quilting.

The ladies will be quilting during the show and will be happy to answer any questions about the craft.

When asked why she liked to quilt Joy Jarvis said, "It's relaxing. It takes my mind off the problems of the world. I fellowship with the ladies," she continued. "We have lunch and have a real good time."
