Challenge Quilts on Display

Whether you're a member who was unable to make the January meeting, or a non-member who enjoys seeing creativity on display, NOW is your chance to enjoy the annual display of "challenge" quilts on display at the Richmond Memorial Library. The library is at 19 Ross Street, Batavia, and is open
Monday – Thursday    9 AM – 9 PM, and  Friday & Saturday     9 AM – 5 PM

This year's challenge theme, "Literature", was chosen by  Lori Anderson.  Members found great inspiration, either in the pages of a favorite book, or in books in general.  Their creativity will be on display through the month of February.  Members are invited to vote for awards in a range of categories.  Non-members are asked to vote for their favorite in the "Viewer's Choice" category.
