‘Bee Creative’

The River Country Quilters are again showing their skills and imagination with their exhibit at 33rd annual Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival at the Hampton Convention Center, Feb. 23-27. The title of their theme this year is “Bee Creative.” For last year’s Mid-Atlantic Festival, their theme was “Baby it’s Cold Outside” for Baby/Youth Quilts resulting in 50 quilts being donated to the Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters by RCQ. RCQ meets from 7-9 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of the month at Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church, Gloucester, showcasing speakers, projects, workshops, show and tell, other activities and an annual report. The public is invited to join the group, which is led by president Cassi Fritzius. Members are from Yorktown and throughout the Middle Peninsula. Showing off some of their “Bee Creative” quilts are, from left, Sweetie Davis, Carol Murdock, Chris Conley, Mariam Sawtschenko, Lee Taylor, Pat Rawls and, seated, Pat Bellows.
