Crafting quilts

Lillian Charron, left, Betty Stone and Carole Phinney, quilt bee committee chairwoman, ensure the lines are just right on a cat quilt made during a quilting bee for Haven House. The Nanaimo Quilter’s Guild held its annual quilting bee Saturday at Oliver Woods Community Centre. A total of 55 quilters attended the bee to sew quilts for Haven House. Last year, the quilters donated 102 quilts to Haven House, and a similar number is expected to be handed over when the donation is made in February. - NIOMI PEARSON photo
