COLUMBUS, Ohio – The volunteer Stitching Sisters of the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute at Ohio State University are seeking participants for their fourth annual “Quilting Day” on Sat., March 8, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

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 portable sewing machines are welcome. Volunteers are needed for registration, food, ironing, pinning and stiching.

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