A quilt show with quilts made by women incarcerated at Coffee Creek Correctional Facility is on display at the Canby Public Library through the end of April. The exhibit also includes instructor-made quilts which are being offered for sale as part of our fundraising.
On Tuesday, April 29th Mary Ann McCammon, an instructor in our Thursday afternoon class, will make a presentation about our program at the library. Mary Ann’s talk starts at 6:30 pm.
The quilt shown at left is a student’s second quilt. CCQ’s students learn the basics of quilting with their first quilts: cutting with a rotary cutter, sewing an accurate quarter inch seam, and basic quilting techniques. With second quilts, they learn more advanced techniques such as half square triangles.
The Canby library is located at 292 N. Holly, Canby, OR. Please check the Canby Library’s website for their hours.
