Pebblecreek Resident Passes Her Skills to Family
Parents and grandparents often want to pass on their wisdom and skills to the next generation. Sometimes the next generation wants to learn but often it is a grandparent that has the time, patience and inclination to teach.
Rosemary Vanasco is pictured with her grandson, Billy Chadwick. Billy is 14 years old and saw his grandmother’s quilts she had created and wanted to make one for his mother. So after a visit to a quilt store to find her favorite colors (turquoise and purple) and learning how to use rulers, rotary cutters and other techniques, Billy created a masculine-influenced, modern quilt of half-square triangles for his mother. Rosemary and Billy shared his product with the PebbleCreek Quilters that meet every second Monday of the month in the Creative Arts Center. Rosemary commented that she has four granddaughters that did not show an interest, so this project with her grandson was particularly fun. It encourages PebbleCreekers to look around and see who might learn from them whether it is wisdom or skills.

PebbleCreek Quilters Ready the Fiber Arts Room
Members of the PebbleCreek Quilters were excited to return to the Fiber Arts Room. The Creative Arts Center was closed for the month of July for painting and new furniture. The room is used almost every day by quilters for sewing or classes. Many friendships are forged as members always have a project in process. Workshops are planned every month to learn a new skill/pattern, create quilts for identified charities and other items that are requested by charity groups. Requested items have included blankets, pillows, dog beds, bags and items for the CAC Gift Gallery. Please take the time to go to: pebblecreekquilters.org to see the latest activities. Members will initiate the new room amenities in August with a night of socializing and sewing. The members truly appreciate the updating and new furniture!!!
