Maybe the living is easy in summer – someplace, that isn’t Arnold. Our focus is different as our weekly Guild meetings stop (until Sept. 4th), and the Flea Market readiness work begins at Independence Hall.
The Annual Flea Market at Ebbetts Pass Community Center, a.k.a. “The Hall”, is held the first full weekend in August. The fact that getting ready for the event takes half of June and all of July, speaks volumes. The local communities bring donations to the Hall throughout the year.
It’s a challenge to work in the Textiles room. Tons of fabrics, bedding, towels, and sewing notions. You just can’t beat $1.00 per yard…
It’s that time when the Independence Hall Quilters Guild takes their summer break and the Community Center begins setting up for the annual Flea Market (first weekend in August)
The Quilt Guild’s last meeting is June 20th, then we start back up on Labor Day Monday, September 5th. And what do we do in the months in between? Well, we help with the flea market effort, work on comfort quilt kits that we “checked out”, and then there are our own quilts we entered into the quilt show to finish and sew sleeves on the back for hanging them on frames.
