Coastal Maine quilting exhibit at Camden library

Feb 01, 2020

Camden — Nothing makes you feel cozy on a chilly winter day quite like a homemade quilt! During the month of February, visit the Picker Room at the Camden Public Library, 55 Main St., to view an outstanding collection of quilts and fabric art produced by the talented members of two local guilds: Coastal Quilters of Maine and Mt. Battie Modern Quilt Guild. The public will have an opportunity to meet the quilters at their reception on Saturday, Feb. 22, from 3 to 5 p.m.

Coastal Quilters is a chapter of Maine’s statewide Pine Tree Quilt Guild that meets on the second Saturday of the month at 10 a.m. at the Lions Club in Camden. They are a group of 35 quilters representing every type of quilter — from traditional to art. Their programs range from workshops where their members share skills and experience, to workshops with local, state and nationally-known speakers.

The Mt. Battie Modern Quilt Guild is a chapter of the worldwide Modern Quilt Guild, which seeks to foster a vibrant and inclusive organization built on encouragement and mutual respect — where all feel welcome. They support the participation of those interested in the growth and development of modern quilting, and who value the diversity arising from differences. The Mt. Battie Modern Quilt Guild meets on the fourth Thursday of each month September through June at 6 p.m. at the Camden Lion’s Club to share new techniques, tips, projects and general information.

A portion of the sales of quilts and quilted art at the show will benefit the Camden Public Library and its programs. For more information on the exhibit, visit librarycamden.org.
