[December 27, 2016]  ATLANTA - Atlanta Quilting Corner, Atlanta Needlework Guild, and Crafty Misfits, need helpers to complete charity projects for 2017. If you knit, crochet, or sew, we can use your talents to assist in completing our charity projects.

If a weekly meeting is not your thing but you would like to help in sewing quilts, dolls, and/or totes, perhaps knitting or crocheting, hats, scarves, and/or mittens, for our 2017 charity projects, we have kits available for you to checkout at our project library. All materials, pattern, and other supplies are included in the kit. Just check one out. When you have finished it, return it to the meeting room for us to add to our count for accomplishing our charity goals.

Kits available starting January 30, 2017, during any Needlework or Quilting meeting at the Atlanta Manor or by calling Donna Campbell 217-960-6261.

Atlanta Needlework Guild creates with yarn, charity and personal projects, every Monday, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Atlanta Quilting Corner creates charity and personal quilt tops, every Wednesday, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The Crafty Misfits prepares kits and creates quilt tops, Monday through Friday from 11:45 a.m. to 3 p.m.

All three groups meet at the Atlanta Manor, Community Room, 201 N. Howard St, Atlanta.

Quilters and Crafty Misfits also tie, machine quilt, and bind quilts, every Saturday, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Atlanta-Eminence Community House basement, located on the corner of Race and 6th Street, Atlanta.
