We take our hats off to these ladies who volunteer their time at the senior center where they hand quilt for those who have quilt tops that they want quilted. The money they earn is given to the senior center. They also teach quilting to those that want to learn. Each year they donate one quilt to be raffled at the Upper Cumberland Quilt Festival with all proceeds from the ticket sales going to help support the Algood Senior Center.
