Take a seat around the quilting frame and enjoy conversation and camaraderie while stitching on this Baskets CQB quilt.  Children are invited to join a “Quilt Anatomy” Scavenger Hunt at 6:00 or 6:30.  We’re also one of 15 stops on the Collins Center “Chocolate Walk”, so bring your ticket for a unique locally-made, decadent treat.

As always, VQM admission is free during First Friday events.
