Quilt show at Canby LibraryA 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.

CCQ featured in Wilsonville Spokesman

An article in the July 18 issue of the Wilsonville Spokesman features Coffee Creek Quilters. Sparked by an exhibit of student- and instructor-made quilts at the Wilsonville Library, the article multiplies the public exposure for CCQ’s prison quilting program. Volunteer Molly Skeen has taken the lead in setting up the exhibit’s electronic slide show using photos taken at Coffee Creek Correctional Facility by The Oregonian’s photographer Beth Nakamura. CCQ received a $900 grant from the City of Wilsonville to fund the costs of creating the traveling exhibit.
