Quilting marathon to help victims

SIDNEY — The tornado devastation in Nashville and surrounding areas has turned a fun way to celebrate National Quilting Month, into a service project.

On Thursday, March 19, the Knotters and Night Shift Knotters of Ohio Living Dorothy Love are hosting a quilting marathon from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. to help those in need. Held in the Amos Center on the campus of Ohio Living Dorothy Love, 2500 N. Kuther Road, there will be jobs for every skill level for those who wish to provide quilts for children in areas that are suffering with loss and displacement. Working with Quilts of Compassion, based in Toledo, these quilts will be deployed as part of their “Quilts for Tennessee” delivery that will happen in about eight weeks.
