Thread Benders Quilt Group We are a group of local ladies who absolutely 'live' to quilt and love every moment. We meet at the Funny River Community Center 1/4 mile down Pioneer Avenue just off Funny River Road at 12.5 mile. We'd love to have you come sew with us if you are visiting the Kenai Peninsula area of Alaska. Bring your sewing machine, needle work, or whatever and spend any Tuesday with us from 10 AM - 3 PM, while your husband goes after those illusive King and Silver Salmon. We usually just do a brown bag lunch so come prepared. There is a little cafe just a mile away in case you would prefer to drop in there for lunch. Our attendance ranges from 6 in the winter months to 15 +/- in the summer months. We have many snow birds in this area. This group is a real 'let your hair down' bunch and we have a super time. Skills of attendees range from beginner to very skilled. So this is the place to come if you want to start quilting or just learn more. Alaska quilt guilds/groups are very heavy into quilting Alaska designs and we have several wonderful shops in our area. So come on up to Alaska, visit the local shops, find a kit or pattern you want to do and head on out. It's a beautiful drive through Moose Preserve. Who knows? You might even get lucky and see one or two. There are no monthly fees to sew with this group. For more information, please contact Lorraine at email@example.com. See you there!!!!!
