HARRISBURG, Pa. — Repurpose some of your
well-worn shirts into a one of a kind quilt. As part of the “On Your Mark… Get
Set… READ!” 2016 Summer Reading Club, long-time sewer JoEllen Myers will be at the
William H. & Marion C. Alexander Family Library to lead guests through all
the necessary steps of constructing a t-shirt quilt.
These classes will be offered in a three-week
series, with one hands-on class each week. Classes will be held on July 20,
July 27 and August 3 starting at 6:00 pm.
During the first class, JoEllen will show
how to properly prep the shirts so they can be quilted. In the second and third
classes, participants will get to sew the t-shirts together and work towards
completing their quilts. Guests are required to provide their own sewing
machine and other additional supplies. A supply list will be provided when
participants sign up. Registration is required. For more information or to
register, visit dcls.org or call your local library.
The “On Your Mark…
Get Set… READ!” Summer Reading Program is sponsored by the Dauphin County
