The Mahaska Stitch and Quilt Guild held its “Stitching for our Heroes” event on May 4. Eleven members and one guest worked on four quilts in the center court of Penn Central Mall on lap quilts that will be given to Mahaska County veterans. Pictured from left to right, holding the quilts are members Ann Evans, Lisa Vohoska, Pat Ancell, Betty Hizer, Eileen Holub and Barb Johnson. In front of the quilts are junior members Cierra Williams and Jensen DeJong, who also helped with the project. The Guild meets on the second Thursday of each month and new members are always welcome. For more information on the guild, contact Cindy Allison at 672-0204, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
