Monday, Nov. 5 at noon, the Friends of the Edinburg Library will have a special presentation on “Quilting as an Art Form”. The one-hour presentation will be held at the Dustin Michael Sekula Memorial Library, 1906 S. Closner Blvd, Edinburg. Presenters, Ron and Barb Bergquist, with over 25 years of quilting experience, will show participants the ins and outs of quilting, share their humble beginnings and the joy quilting.

The Bergquist are both retired from their profession in IT and after doing their research decided to open a brick and mortar shop, A Block Away Quilt. Their dream is to “bring people together, unite the quilters in the area and make the shop a meeting place for them to share their craft and learn together.”

This presentation is brought to you by the Friends of the Edinburg Public Library, a nonprofit organization that takes an active role in the support of the Edinburg public library and its services to the community.

The public is cordially invited to attend the Friends of the Library Brown Bag Luncheon which is a free event open to the public. The Friends provide light refreshments, so bring a sandwich or stop by the Book & Bytes Café conveniently located inside the Library, where you can find healthy salads and sandwiches.
