Multi-Purpose Facility Operation Manager Elise Redd spent the day teaching elders how to create their own bear paw quilt during a one-day workshop Wednesday, July 26 at the Multi-Purpose Facility in Ignacio, Colo. The art of quilting takes patience, it is very tedious, yet rewarding. Redd created the design and helped the ladies one by one on how to design, cut and sew the quilts. The ladies enjoyed a luncheon, snacks and laughs throughout the day.
