Calumet Art Center to host quilting bee Oct. 9

CALUMET -- The Calumet Art Center and Pam Beal will be hosting a quilting bee from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 9. You will be able to participate in hand-quilting an art quilt on an antique floor frame. The quilt components are a nice mix of the contemporary and the traditional. If you do not know how to quilt, come and learn. If you love embroidery, come and add your special stitches. This is an improvisational project with no wrong moves.

Pam Beal has a long quilting history; she will be demonstrating technique, answering your questions and cheering you on! It is hoped that this quilt will be completed by the end of the year and made available for fundraising for the Calumet Art Center.

The Calumet Art Center is located at 57055 Fifth Street.
