Jessamine Piece Quilters are an active group of quilters in Nicholasville, Kentucky (Jessamine County).
We are now (May 2021) back to meeting in person after a year apart and Zoom meetings due to the 2020-2021 COVID-19 pandemic.
We meet weekly, and talk about quilts, plan our activities, and bring in our latest projects to share. Once a month we usually have a quilt class, either taught by one of our members, or a guest teacher. Sometimes we work on a group project together. And we usually meet once a month at a local quilt shop, and go out to lunch together. Every year we make a quilt together and raffle it off for a donation to Kids Cancer Alliance.
Most years we put on a quilt show with a quilter’s yard sale. There will not be a quilt show in 2023. We are currently researching other venues since we are no longer meeting at the former Nicholasville Christian Church on 2nd Street.
We are now meeting on Tuesday mornings, at the Extension Office. Doors open at 9:00, business meeting usually starts at 9:30 am.. Beginning September 27, 2022, we are meeting at the Jessamine County Extension office, 95 Park Dr, Nicholasville, KY 40356. Duration of the meeting varies (1-3 hrs?) depending on what we are doing. And how much we are talking and visiting!
Currently (2023) the third week of each month we also meet on Wednesday at 9:00 for a class or Sit-n-Sew at the Jessamine County Extension office, 95 Park Dr, Nicholasville, KY 40356.
