COLUMBUS, Ohio – The volunteer Stitching Sisters of the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute at Ohio State University have rescheduled their fourth annual “Quilting Day” for Saturday, April 19, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The event was originally set for March 8, but was cancelled due to snow.

Lap quilts sewn during the retreat are given to breast cancer patients receiving chemotherapy at JamesCare in Dublin, a comprehensive breast health center that is part of The James. Quilt Day is being held this year at the Haimerl Center, 1421 Morse Road, and includes lunch.

The group is trying to complete its “100 Quilts of Comfort Challenge” in which people can also bring in finished quilts for the patients.

All fabric donations are appreciated and volunteers can bring portable sewing machines for use. Volunteers are needed for registration, food, ironing, pinning and stiching.

Please email Joanne Lester at JamesStitchingSisters@yahoo.com to register for the free event or for more information.
