The Susquehanna Valley Quilt Guild is anxiously getting ready for their upcoming quilt show that comes around every other year. It is truly a showcase of artistic talent in the textile world. The location will be at the Warrior Run Fire Hall the first weekend in March and over 150 quilts will be on display. Carol Shetler said three quilts are coming together for the first time in 100 years and there will be an exhibit devoted to WWI. Come and vote for your favorite quilt. Some of the guild members meet during the year and put together quilts for Hospice. Last year they donated 101 quilts and they were awesome.
I am finding quite a list of interesting things to do this winter, activities I’ve never done before. Tuesday nights at 5 you can paint with Tina Tickle in Montgomery at the Riverside Lounge and leave with a nice piece of art. Two weeks ago I painted a topiary on a roof slate from a local barn and this week I am painting a flowered wine glass. Wine and tacos can be enjoyed while working on your art project, and Tina supplies everything.
On Saturday afternoon I did some energy work with Brittany Dincher at the Triad Center in Pennsdale for Conscious Living. I always leave with such a revelation and a deeper understanding of my existence on this planet. Friday night I took my granddaughter to the plantetarium at Lycoming College. It was free admission and they talked about groundhog day and its history. The seats are wonderful, very comfortable – you can lean far back and look at the indoor night sky. Seasonal shows are held for the public about six times a year, usually coinciding with Williamsport’s First Friday. After that event, we headed to the Lycoming County museum for the Shutterbug show where we enjoyed some finger foods, cookies and punch while viewing some outstanding photography. Again, another free event.
If you have the culinary spirit, and love ethnic cuisine, there are cooking classes offered on Saturdays at LeJeune Chef led by chefs and student interns from Penn College. The next one is coming up on Feb. 17 and will feature Chocolate/Bourbon, a four course dinner. There is usually one class a month, except for May, August and December. Call 570-320-CHEF for the list.
Congratulations to Mike Philbin of Keystone Specialties in Muncy who recently was recognized with the Phillips/Plankenhorn Small Busines Award.
If you want to plan a nice day trip or overnight trip, and think spring, then check out the Philadelphia Flower Show with its theme “Wonders of Water” which runs from March 3-11. I read that guests will enter under a canopy of exotic flowers and come “face-to-face with a multi-level, bamboo waterfall.”
