Praises 'Neighbors' article on quilts



Being interested in handiwork of any kind since kindergarten, it pleased me to read the nice July 28 article in "Neighbors" regarding Louise Hollingsworth. Ms. Hollingsworth is to be commended for her dedication in contributing quilts to the Ronald McDonald House.

I would like to view her quilts in person and my wish is that Ms. Hollingsworth would consider visiting the ladies here in Cumberland Village (a senior retirement residence) in order that we could have the pleasure of meeting and seeing her talents.

A few of the ladies here are currently involved with the crotcheting and knitting of afghans for the needy sponsored by the Red Cross program, "Warm Up America." It has been a wonderful togetherness for us and the warmth it brings by reaching out to others. It is also my wish that other ladies of Aiken in this program consider visiting us sometime during September, which will be the one-year celebration for Red Cross' sponsorship.

Please contact our activity director Bebette Smith if this sounds appealing. My thanks for the "Neighbors" issue. ... It's rewarding to be able to visit those who we probably never will meet personally.
