Country Stitches of East Lansing will host the 31st annual charity Quilt-A-Thon from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Friday, Jan. 3, and Saturday, Jan. 4 at Country Stitches, located at 2200 Coolidge Road, one block east of US-127 at Lake Lansing Road, across from Meijer. Area volunteers will finish quilts from quilting materials donated by local quilters and Country Stitches for EVE, Loaves & Fishes, and Gateway Community Center.
“The Quilt-A-Thon is a great way to keep the holiday spirit alive year-round,” said Ann Fuller, owner of Country Stitches. “We are very proud of our volunteers who work very hard to help people in need.”
The Quilt-A-Thon will also take place at Country Stitches located in Jackson on Friday, January 3rd and Saturday, January 4th. Quilts made at that location will be donated to the John George Home.
Volunteers will be tying and finishing quilts on Friday and Saturday in East Lansing and Jackson. Individuals of all skill levels from no experience to expert are needed to make this year’s Quilt-A-Thon a success.
