CAMDEN — Nothing makes you feel cozy on a chilly winter day quite like a homemade quilt, according to Camden Public Library, in a news release. During the month of February, visit the Picker Room at the Camden Public Library to view a collection of quilts and fabric art produced by the members of two local guilds: Coastal Quilters of Maine and Mt. Battie Modern Quilt Guild.
The public will have an opportunity to meet the quilters at their reception, Saturday, Feb. 22, from 3 to 5 p.m.
Coastal Quilters is a chapter of Maine’s statewide Pine Tree Quilt Guild that meets on the second Saturday of the month, at 10 a.m., at the Lions Club in Camden. They are a group of 35 quilters representing every type of quilter – from traditional to art. Their programs range from workshops where their members share skills and experience, to workshops with local, state and nationally known speakers.
The Mt. Battie Modern Quilt Guild is a chapter of the worldwide Modern Quilt Guild, that seeks to foster a vibrant and inclusive organization built on encouragement and mutual respect – where all feel welcome. They support the participation of those interested in the growth and development of modern quilting, and who value the diversity arising from differences.
The Mt. Battie Modern Quilt Guild meets on the fourth Thursday of each month September through June, at 6 p.m., at the Camden Lion’s Club to share new techniques, tips, projects, and general information.
A portion of the sales of quilts and quilted art at the show will benefit the Camden Public Library and its programs.
