Seniors by the Wayside
This month is a treat for quilters! On March 13, 2019 our presenter is Phyllis Thompson, a member of Highland Presbyterian, who does quilting as a hobby pastime. She will share her creative expertise in needlework and textiles that she developed over a 25 year period. Phyllis uses a lot of bright colors and many different techniques in her quilts; she will bring a number of quilts to share.
Phyllis Thompson is a native of Chicago where she lived for 40 years and had a career as a nursing instructor after graduating from Carroll University. She and her husband moved to Lancaster in 1979 where she soon joined the local quilter’s groups. In her words “My quilting friends were my support group during the 25 years that my husband suffered with dementia.” Phyllis has taken many classes over the years, did some weaving and spinning, but quilting was her favorite.
We meet on the second Wednesday of each month, at 12 noon, in the Atrium with the program to start at or about 12:30 PM. Bring your bag lunches [we provide the beverages] and join us to welcome our guest and enjoy another interesting presentation.
Note: We invite others in the greater Wayside community, even if you are not “senior”, to attend this very interesting presentation.
