The Quiltathon

Each year in January or February, we hold a day-long quiltmaking marathon called the Quilt Outreach Quiltathon. Volunteers join us to create quilts and to achieve a common goal — helping others. The Quiltathon is a time for quilters in the community to be together, eat a great potluck lunch, and do what we enjoy most — making quilts.
