Quilts R Us will hold a quilt showcase Saturday, Feb. 22, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., at the Matlacha Community Center , 4577 Pine Island Road, Matlacha. Admission is free and the event is open to the public.
The group organized 22 years ago and has been quilting ever since. "We make these quilts for family and friends," Alica Tribbey said. "Each one of us also makes at least one quilt to give to F.I.S.H (Friendly Islanders Sending Help) for babies born here on the island with their Christmas stuff."
The club meets every Tuesday, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., at the Matlacha Community Center. The center is located at 4577 Pine Island Road, Matlacha.
