Members to show quilting process

The Norman Area Quilters Guild returns to the Norman Public Library for a daylong demonstration of the quilting process, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 29 in the Lowry Room of the library, 225 N. Webster Ave. The theme for this year’s demonstration is a focus on a “new” view of the “old” art of quilting.

In advance of the program, group members have provided a quilt display that will be exhibited in the Campbell Gallery Room of the library throughout March. Registration is not required to attend.

For more information, call 701-2620.
