The Heritage Quilters annual Quilt Cutting Day for the 2015 raffle quilt begins at 10 a.m. January 15, 2014. If you are a quilter, bring your favorite scissors, pencil, ruler, chalk to mark dark fabrics, needle, and white or off-white thread. And, of course, bring your favorite dish to pass!
The potluck, which will begin between 11:30 a.m. and noon on the cutting day, is a highlight of the Heritage Quilters' social year!
