Carla and Robert Metcalf of Fairfield was the winner of the Fairfield Memorial Hospital Auxiliary handmade baby quilt that was recently raffled off.
The FMH quilters finish on average 3-6 quilts each year, making about $1,000 for the Hospital Auxiliary. The volunteers meet each Thursday from about 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. in the quilting room in the white building directly behind the Hospital. Quilting is done for individuals who furnish a quilt top and then the volunteer quilters finish the quilts for the individual clients. There is always a large demand for quilts to be finished; therefore, anyone who has some experience in quilting would be welcomed to join the volunteer quilters. The additional volunteers would help ensure that the quilts are finished in a timely manner for clients and additional funds would be raised to benefit the Hospital.
