Quilting Day Benefits Breast Cancer Patients
The James Stitching Sisters of Ohio State’s James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute are seeking volunteers for a quilting day on April 4 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Lap quilts sewn during the day-long retreat will be given to breast cancer patients who are receiving treatment at JamesCare in Dublin and JamesCare East. The fifth annual event is being held at the Haimerl Center, 1421 Morse Road, and includes lunch.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own sewing machines and extension cords.
Participants who donate completely finished lap quilts to enter the quilt challenge, “209 Quilts in 2009,” will be eligible for door prizes. Fabric donations are appreciated. Volunteers are needed for registration, food, ironing, piecing, and quilting.
