Calling all quilters . . . The public who frequent the Citizen’s Center know that quilting is available every day we are open, not just on Fridays as our calendar suggests. Recently one of our quilters, Loveda Swaim had to retire from quilting. Loveda came early every morning and diligently quilted until noon. If any of you gals or guys have a little time to spare, we desperately need some more quilters. Sarah Luttrell says she needs some company in the craft room. The Center quilts for the public so there is never a shortage of quilting.
