We were pleasantly surprised to find Coffee Creek Quilters featured in a new book titled Quilters Questions: A book of Curious Queries. This book includes open-ended questions that probe feelings and opinions about quilting related topics such as quilter identity, motivation, sewing friends, quilt designs, etc.
For example, here’s question #3:
If you could host a quilting party with three famous people — living or late — who would be included? Why?
And here are the last two questions:
299. Have you ever donated quilting fabrics or books to a prison quilting program?
300. Since 2002, the Coffee Creek Quilters have taught quilting classes to incarcerated women at a correctional facility in Wilsonville, Oregon. They even offer a 14-page guide from their website on how to start such a program. Have you ever volunteered to teach quilting at a local prison or correctional facility?
Quilters Questions was written by Kyra Hicks and is available from Amazon and other booksellers.
