Avid quilters stitch together creations, relationships

Nothing brings people together quite like a shared passion. For Uvalde Piecemakers Quilt Guild, that passion is quilting.

The guild meets the first Tuesday of the month at the Herby Ham Activity Center from 10 a.m. to noon. For members, there is a $15 membership fee due at the beginning of every year.

Members range in age from their mid-30s to their upper 90s. All age groups and both genders are welcome to attend.

Attendees hail from a variety of locations throughout the region – from Brackettville to Sabinal to Carrizo Springs, even as far away as Quemado near Eagle Pass.
