Beginning September 26, 2016, the Pieces and Patches Quilt Guild of Jackson will be holding its monthly meetings at the Ella Sharp Museum of Art and History, located at 3225 Fourth Street in Jackson. We are excited about the new location right in Jackson, in the community room.
Even though the address is on Fourth St., it is easier to access the parking and entrance from Oakwood Drive, which is on the east side of the museum.
So, if you are coming in on Fourth St from the north, turn left (east) on Hickory Drive to Oakwood. Turn right until you see the parking lot on the right. If you are coming from the south on Stonewall, turn right on Oakwood and continue around the curve until you see the parking lot on your left.
The map below gives a broad overview of the location of the museum.

To commemorate National Quilt Month, a group of quilters led by Elizabeth Hewett, planned a "School House Quilt In". Several dozen quilters meet together bringing their quilting projects to work on during the day, but that's not all. Every hour, an accomplished quilter shared with the group on topics to enhance our knowledge and increase our love of quilting.
