Piece together some time to see quilt show

They only roll out the goods every two years, so take advantage of seeing the Camano Island Quilters show called “25 Years of Quilting.”

It’s planned for 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and Saturday at Stanwood Middle School, 9405 271st St. NE in Stanwood. It costs $5 at the door.

This year’s show features the work of charter members, says Kristi Willard, of Camano Island. The guild was formed in 1986.

Organizers say the location offers a large, well-lit room to fill with their work. Vendors will be on hand selling fabric, books, machines, woodwork and gifts.

The group is involved with making comfort quilts for children in need, American Hero Quilts for injured soldiers and quilts for historic cabins at Cama Beach State Park.

Membership topped 150 this year and new members are always welcome. They meet monthly to learn new skills and help one another with techniques.

Stanwood High School home economics classes will be on hand raising money for their programs.

Mabel Hegewald, 92, who lives in Marysville, responds to a recent note in this column about the secret to making yummy cinnamon rolls.

“Put milk and brown sugar in the bottom of the pan,” Hegewald says. “And butter and cinnamon.”

After the rolls cook, turn them upside down and enjoy the caramel topping.

She says she knows what she’s talking about in the kitchen. She used to bake seven loaves of bread twice a week for a family of six.
