Title discussed: A Quilter's Holiday, by Jennifer Chiaverini. Date of meeting: Tuesday, Nov. 9, 6:30pm. Summary: For the Elm Creek Quilters, the day after Thanksgiving is a time to gather at Elm Creek Manor and spend the day stitching holiday gifts. A recent remodeling of the manor's kitchen unearthed a cornucopia that once served as the centerpiece of the Bergstrom family's holiday table. Into it, each Bergstrom would place an object that symbolized something he or she was especially thankful for that year. On this quilter's holiday, Sylvia Bergstrom Compson Cooper has invited her friends to continue the tradition by sewing quilt blocks that represent their thankfulness and gratitude.
