           The second Tuesday of each month, from 10am till 12noon, at the Catholic Church of the Good Shepherd on Main Street in Campton, we will gather to work on quilts. Everyone is welcomed. 

We are working on lap quilts to give to the Wolfe County Nursing Home. We have quilts ready for tacking and pinning. We will also have the supplies for freezer paper applique' if anyone wants to give that a try. Be sure to bring any quilts you have made or are working on to show us! If you have any questions you can call Janine at 606-725-4860.

 

Where I’m From

 

            Thanks to everyone who submitted a “Where I’m From” poem to the KAC through the Appalachian Heritage Alliance. Folks from the counties of Magoffin, Morgan, Jefferson, Elliot, and Wolfe, including the group poem written by the Women Together, submitted their poems through the Appalachian Heritage Alliance. It has been a treat to read all of them. They are now posted on the Kentucky Art Council’s web site.  Poems will be accepted till December 1st so please consider writing one and emailing it to me so you can be part of this very special project that celebrates everyone in Kentucky - as well as our Kentucky Poet Laureate, George Ella Lyon.

            The Kentucky Arts Council has uploaded more than 400 “Where I’m From” project poems from 60 Kentucky counties, including a few videos and images. You can read the poems by going to the Kentucky “Where I’m From” project page at http://artscouncil.ky.gov/KentuckyArt/WhereFromAbout.htm and clicking on “Read submitted poems” in the left column OR go directly to http://artscouncil.ky.gov/KentuckyArt/WhereFromMap.htm. Click on your county to see your poems! Video links and images are included in the PDFs of poems.
