Revised pattern for bags available
Our Community Service Committee has just revised the pattern for bags we make to donate to cancer patients. The pattern now incorporates using corrugated plastic to make the bottom of the bag stiff. This is a very popular project, helpful and easy to make. Click HERE for the pattern.

SAWTOOTH MOUNTAIN, THE TOMPKINS COUNTY BICENTENNIAL QUILT
On April 7, 1817, by act of the New York State Legislature, the counties of Seneca and Cayuga were divided, and Tompkins County was formed.
The official opening of a year-long celebration begins April 7, 2017. The TCQG's newly completed Sawtooth Mountain is ready and hanging next to the 1850s inspiration quilt at The History Center. If you are downtown this spring, take a peek.
The History Center regular hours are Tuesday,Thursday, and Saturday, 11-5, and is also open for first Fridays. We also hope the quilt will travel to bicentennial and other community celebrations across the county.
When members of the TCQG set out to reproduce the historic quilt, we tried to match each of the many fabrics with reproduction fabrics from our stashes. Go and compare! You may be surprised by the variety of 1850 fabrics and want to add to your stash. We did.
