Looking for Quilt Help

The Ladies Coffee House is seeking some quilt makers to raffle off

The Ladies Coffee House invites you help make a lap quilt (or two) to raffle off at the Port Alice 50th Reunion.

Each participant is asked to make one 12 x 12 quilt block and the ladies will do the final assembly.

We have material and patterns available at Coffee House on Wednesday mornings between 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Sewing machines and help will be available on Wednesday mornings as well. If you would like help in the evening give them a call and we will set up an evening schedule.

You can follow a pattern or design your own block. Don’t worry if you have never quilted before, but want to take part in this project, they will help you at Coffee House.

Ladies Coffee House meets on Wednesday mornings at the Ocean View Church, across from the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #180, from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Quilt blocks need to be in to the Coffee House no later than May 31, 2015.

The proceeds from this raffle will go towards Christmas Hampers here in Port Alice.

For more info call: Diane Inglis 284-
