QUILTING TIES EVERYTHING TOGETHER WORKSHOPS
This year Cornell Cooperative Extension of Delaware County’s Executive Director, Jeanne Darling, is offering quilters and the public another opportunity to participate in a quilting project to support cancer education and screening.
This year’s County Fair quilt project will encourage quilters and the public to celebrate “Quilting Ties Everything Together: Family, Friends, Food, Fellowship.” We would like to display quilt projects this year at the Delaware County that have been especially fun to create and will inspire others to create a quilt/quilted project. The County Fair this year will feature “Growing Local Foods – CCE Human Ecology Programs.”
To participate in “Quilting Ties Everything Together” project, each individual or group is asked to complete a wall hanging or mini-quilt by Friday, July 17, 2015. The quilted projects will be displayed at the Delaware County Fair August 17-22, 2015 and may be available for bid. Quilt projects bid money will be donated to Relay for Life. Quilters can also volunteer to do quilting demonstrations at the Delaware County Fair.
Jeanne Darling would like to thank all the quilters who have participated in quilted cancer projects that have funded cancer education and screening. For more information about this year’s quilt project or to receive a copy of the project guidelines, please call Jeanne Darling at Cornell University Cooperative Extension at 607-865-6531 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
