Fairmount Homes recently invited members of the local community to take a break from the winter doldrums, get out of the house and spend time with other quilters at February Quilting Days. This year’s event was held Saturday, February 15; Tuesday, February 18; and Wednesday, February 19, from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. daily in the Farm Crest Community Room at 1100 Farm Crest Drive in Ephrata. Quilting enthusiasts came together to work on between 10 and 15 quilts that were set up and ready for volunteers in the Farm Crest Community Room. Donations of quilts, quilt tops, or funds to cover the cost of quilt supplies were appreciated. The quilts produced during Quilting Days will be sold at Fairmount’s annual Benefit Auction and Chicken Barbecue on Saturday, September 13. Fairmount Homes is a nonprofit continuing care retirement community located near Ephrata. Shown in the photo is one group of volunteers hard at work on a quilt.
