Quilting done out of love for charity
HUNTINGTON - Each year a group of local women turn their love of quilting and sewing into a powerful message of charity.
Susan Whitmore, president of the Piecemakers, said the quilt making and handwork for the annual quilt exhibit and presentation at St. Peter Claver Catholic Church in Huntington is done out of love for charity.
“This is not a quilt show,” Whitmore said. “This is actually a summation of our work that we do every Sunday between the months of September and May. We sew and make items for various nonprofit organizations in the community. It’s done out of a love for quilting, charity and service to our community.”
