November was a busy month for the UUCW PieceMakers quilting group. In addition to an outing to the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts and Fiber Arts in Cedarburg, group members joined UUCW member Kathy Herrewig in delivering fleece blankets they had made to the Epilepsy Monitoring Center at Children’s Hospital. The delivery trip included a tour of the center.
PieceMakers is an affinity group for people interested in sewing and quilting. All ages and levels of sewers and quilters are welcome, from beginners to experts.
