Hill 'N Hollow Quilters Guild of Mountain Home announces a special tote bag class taught by member, Sue Schaufler.

"Sue's Tote Bag" is a 16" X 19" X 5" lined tote, and the class to make one is scheduled for 9 a.m. -- 3 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 6, at St. Andrews Episcopal Church, 511 Coley Drive, Mountain Home.

The class is open to members for $15; non-members for $20.

Students will learn how to line the tote to include an inside zipper pocket, miter the tote bottom, insert the magnetic snap closure, and attach the binding by hand and machine. This tote bag is a wonderful gift idea for friends and family.

For more information about the class or to enroll, contact Kathy McClellan by calling 870-430-5071 or e-mailing her at bkmac@gassville.net.

Join members of Hill 'N Hollow Quilters Guild in the James A. Gaston Visitor Center at Bull Shoals-White River State Park in Bull Shoals Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 1 and 2, as they demonstrate the traditional Ozarks craft of making quilts, while serving local charities and injured soldiers and veterans.

Between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., members of the guild will demonstrate the cutting and piecing of quilt tops, layering the tops with batting and backing, and quilting or tying the result into quilts. There will also be a display of quilts made by members for charitable organizations.

The Guild has donated more than 4,800 quilts since 1990. Recipients include Baxter Regional Medical Center; Baxter County Health Department; Serenity, Inc. (domestic abuse and sexual assault center); Baxter County Sheriff's Department; Mountain Home Police Department for use in comforting kids in need, Hospice House of the Ozarks, Little Rock Veteran's Administration Hospital; Ozark Mountain Alcohol/Drug Residential Treatment (OMART); and victims of local, national and international natural disasters.

The guild's mission is to preserve, promote, share and teach the art of quilting and to promote fellowship of the members.
