FCCLA Plans Quilts for Kids Event
The Plainview FCCLA Chapter will host a Quilts for Kids Community Event November 10th from 10 a.m. to 3:00 pm. in the Tartan Gym at Plainview High School. Anyone in the Plainview or surrounding area is welcome to attend, stay as long as desired, and put together as many quilts as possible. Quilts will be returned to the Lincoln Chapter of Quilts for kids where they will be dispersed to hospitals throughout Nebraska. With the quilts arriving as kits, an experienced sewer may have one preemie quilt made in 1 1/2 hours or less. The quilts will arrive to the chapter "pre-packaged" meaning that each quilt arrives in a small bag with fabric already cut and matched together. Directions are included with each package. The majority of the quilts made will be Preemie Quilts created for infants in the NICU Hospitals. A few larger and "more difficult" quilts will be available for the more "advanced sewer". These will require batting.
