Stop by the Georgetown Peabody Library now through May 12 to view over 40 quilts on display. This is the 3rd Bi-Annual Quilt Exhibit sponsored by the Friends of the Georgetown Peabody Library. Seven superb examples of local quilt hung over the balcony when you walk into the library. There is special exhibit in the Meeting Room which features fourteen quilts from the Seven Sisters or Sew Quilting Group. These women have been meeting in one another's homes since the 1980s. There are child centered quilts in the Children's room, including 4 quilts done by children. There are also 2 quilts that are going to be donated in May to the Kulea Orphanage in Africa in May, and a quilt featuring hands prints that were done in a Georgetown Kindergarten class 12 years ago. Upstairs there are two rather special quilts on either side of the reference desk. One is a beautiful counted cross stitch quilt and the other is a wedding quilt done with photos printed on cloth and pieced into a bed size quilt. Stop by during library hours or during the Books in Bloom event on Saturday, April 29 from 6:30 to 9pm to view these magnificent quilts.

Did you know that you can make a free donation to the charity of your choice every time you shop at Amazon? Amazon has something called the Smile Program and if you sign up every time you shop Amazon makes a donation to the charity of your choice at Amazon’s expense. Their list of charities includes every charity registered with the IRS. The one issue you need to be aware of is the charity you pick has to have set themselves up with Amazon or the money goes into an account on hold until the charity signs up with them. I have already worked through this issue with the Georgetown Education Foundation (Georgetown Public Education Foundation Inc). You can read about the program here.
