We’ve seen the Twin Rivers Quilters Guild work at quilt shows over the years and we were happy to see them doing a live video of their monthly meeting. Their goal is “to promote and perpetuate the art of quilting. Our work is designed to benefit and educate all persons interest in preserving, continuing and advancing this art. The guild meets our goal by offering workshops and instruction on quilting techniques, and by sponsoring various exhibits, including a biennial quilt show. As part of our service to the community, our members provide children’s quilts (Ronald McDonald House, Project Linus, etc.), lap robes and quilts for local nursing homes, quilts for other nonprofit organizations, and we help the Coastal Women’s Shelter”. Join them in the basement of the Tabernacle Baptist Church located at 616 Broad St. in New Bern on the second Thursday of the month at 10 a.m.
