Ohio Valley Quilters Guild Exhibiting at Main Library

Members of the Ohio Valley Quilters Guild will display quilts representing all skill levels in the Atrium of the Main Library, 800 Vine Street, from January 25- February 28. It's all part of the guild's annual show, Sew Near to My Heart, set for February 9-11.

The Ohio Valley Quilters Guild is 20 years old and has over 300 members. "We focus on making quilts for children of women in distress," said Joyce Foley, President. "These include such groups as Healthy Moms and Babies and Bethany House. Last year we made and gave away 183 quilts."

"Anyone who wants to become a member need only have an interest in quilting," she continued. "We've had seasoned quilters and those who have never picked up a needle. The exhibit at the Library represents a wide variety of talent and skill level, to show anyone interested in how much fun quilting can be."

The guild is collaborating with the American Cancer Society to put on the Sew Near to My Heart Quilt Show at the Sharonville Convention Center from February 9-11. There will be over 300 quilts on display, as well as educational booths, classes, and demonstrations. For additional information, call 859-525-2451.
