Quilting is an art that has had a new surge of interest in recent years. In the past, most women learned to quilt. However as many began working outside the home, quilting became more and more of a lost art.
At the Albany Senior Center there is a group that meets every Thursday from 9am-2pm. Much like women in the past gathered at quilting bees, these ladies work to piece together quilts while they talk, laugh, and share stories of their lives. These quilters are truly artisans, making quilts of many sizes and patterns. Some are donated to people in need or to help charitable organizations. Some are for sale in the Senior Center gift shop. They are always happy to take orders for quilts. You are always welcome to come and observe on Thursday. If you'd like to try your hand at cutting the squares or piecing the pattern, all skill levels are welcome.
For more information, call 541-917-7760.
