Thimbles and Threads Quilt Guild of Glenville hosted its Tenth Annual Quilt Show. “Patchwork Gathering” during the 2007 West Virginia Folk Festival. The display of quilts, wall hangings, pillows, clothing, and other decorative items are displayed in the sanctuary of Trinity United Methodist Church on Main Street.
The primary goal of the guild is to promote the joy of quilting, and to help members learn new techniques and tackle new projects. Some meetings are work sessions devoted to a special project, Quilts for Kids.
Members make cuddle quilts for children who have illnesses or who are suffering from a traumatic experience such as the loss of a parent or loss of a home. The first Kid’s Quilt was presented to a child in 1999, and the project continues with over 80 quilts having been given so far to comfort children. Dina Bush, owner of Stitching Post, has generously donated embroidered labels for all the Kid’s Quilts.
