Quilting Bee

Quilting Bee

The Oakmont Quilters meet on the second Wednesday of each month to sew and quilt on individual projects and the fourth Wednesday for a business meeting and program. Quite often members of the group will demonstrate a particular method of the sewing and quilting process and the quilters have work days together making quilts, various quilt blocks or related items. The group makes doll quilts to be given to the Welfare League which are then paired up with a teddy bear and given to disadvantaged children. Oakmont Quilting Bee is an informal group with no dues or requirements, other than an interest in quilting. One need not be an expert quilter or even an active quilter. Anyone new to quilting or with an interest in the art form is welcome and encouraged to attend. Meeting Details: Central Activity Center – Art Room 2nd & 4th Wednesday of each month Contact Information: Elizabeth McDonnell Phone: 707-538-2523
