WHERE: CAP ArtSpace Gallery (First Floor) in the Tompkins Center for History & Culture on the Ithaca Commons - 110 North Tioga St. Ithaca NY 14850.
PRESENTERS: Brooktondale Community Center, Dryden Thimble Therapy, & Ellis Hollow Quilters, moderated by Brigid Hubberman
It's hard to imagine the Ellis Hollow Fair without its coveted quilt raffle, or the Brooktondale Apple Festival without its annual quilt raffle. As these beloved items become family heirlooms, what is sometimes not recognized is the uncounted hours of volunteer labor that goes into creating these local treasures each year.
Join members of the Ellis Hollow Quilters (Now in their 56th year), Dryden Thimble Therapy, and the Brooktondale Community Center as they share and remember the decades of quilt work that have supported our community programs and initiatives. An overdue recognition and appreciation for these sewists and the tens of thousands they have raised, and the good they have done for local programs, organizations, and their communities.
No registration necessary.
