Mark and Suzanne Fettback wanted to do something for the seniors at the home that treated Suzanne’s parents, Ken and Lorna Tombs, so well.
Suzanne is an avid quilter, and since quilts are “something that they always need” at Fort Langley Seniors Community (formerly Simpson Manor), said Mark, that’s what they’re going to do.
And they’re getting help from fellow quilters and A Great Notion Supply Ltd.
So far, Mark said, nine ladies have signed up to help put together 24 lap quilts over two sessions, starting Monday, April 29, at 10 a.m.
All the materials for the project are being supplied by Mark and Suzanne. A Great Notion provided that at cost, and is also providing space and an instructor.
And free lunch is part of the deal, courtesy of Mark and Suzanne.
Suzanne “already spent time cutting pieces” for the lap quilts, said Mark, so anyone wishing to help out need only bring their own sewing machine.
The second session will be on May 13, also from 10 to noon, with lunch provided.
Both sessions will be at A Great Notion’s 108 – 19289 Langley ByPass location.
Pre-registration is required through A Great Notion Supply Ltd. Call 604-575-9028 or register online at agreatnotion.com.
