This month there are two quilters for the month. The reason is that both ladies are not only good friends, but they work beautifully together, and have done so many good things for the community.
Pat Hinkle has been a member of the Pieceful Hearts Quilters Guild for nearly 12 years. She has been a quilter for 25 years.
Angie Faircloth has also been a member for 12 years. Angie differs from Pat because she likes to follow a pattern to a tee. She loves traditional quilts and loves Civil War patterns.
Both Pat and Angie were involved in group projects making basket quilts, Lisa’s Flower Garden was another project that involved incorporating wool into the quilt, and every other year there is a quilt show challenge.
On Oct.11 and 12, the Pieceful Hearts Quilters Guild will hold its quilt show at the Riverview Activity Center. Pat and Angie are coordinators of the silent auction. The money goes toward the Guild, which turns around and gives back to the community. Anyone wanting to make a monetary donation or donate an item that is clean and in good repair that is sewing related can do so at St. Bart’s Episcopal Church every Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall.
Both quilters love the weekly bees that PHQG offers to its members every Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. or on Mondays from 7 to 9 p.m. Both groups meet in the Fellowship Hall at St. Bart’s.
