An important goal of Courthouse Quilters is to support charitable organizations. The group will host a quilt and craft show from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 6, at the Elks Lodge on Route 31 in Flemington, N.J.
Courthouse Quilters, a Hunterdon County based group of highly diverse quilters and fiber artists, hosted a member auction of quilts, fabric and sewing supplies.
All proceeds, $2,300, were donated to Family Promise, a nonprofit local organization that helps to sustain individuals during their search for permanent living accommodations and that aims to end homelessness.
Courthouse Quilters is a nonprofit organization that promotes the art and history of quilt-making in its various forms. A large initiative of this very active guild is to educate new members about traditional and modern quilt-making and various aspects of fiber artistry through workshops and individual instruction.
