Staff reports

March 18 is National Quilting Day. Many quilting guilds around the United States will be holding workshops, having fundraisers, and sponsoring displays that highlight the art of quilting.

Most of the activities held will help the communities that are home to the various quilt guilds.

In Minden, the Carson Valley Quilt Guild will hold a workshop in observance of National Quilting Day, making happy, bright quilts for children.

The finished quilts will be given to the Douglas County Family Support Council when the council opens the new domestic violence shelter for battered women and their children.

The workshop will be held at the Minden Medical Center, second floor meeting room from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The public is invited to participate.
