Courthouse Quilters Guild raises money for local charities


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.

In addition to a display of quilts and sale of a wide variety of hand-crafted items, the day will feature a sale of baby and child quilts made by the guild members. Part of the proceeds from the sale of these unique baby quilt gifts will be donated to Safe Harbor of Flemington, N.J.
Safe Harbor is a nonprofit organization that serves as a sanctuary for children, families and individuals affected by various trauma-related experiences.
