Quilt Viewing Opportunity, March 11-12, in Coburg

One of our members alerted us to this two-day opportunity to see quilts. Please note this will be the public's only chance to see these quilts in this facility. Here's some information about this special exhibit:

Quilters are invited to view an art quilt project during rare public access to Serenity Lane’s new campus in Coburg:

Mary Nyquist Koons designed, sewed and finished nearly 50 quilts with inspirational sayings as part of her “Slogans for Serenity” project. The quilting was completed by Celeste Percy. Mary donated the quilts to Serenity Lane, and they have been placed throughout the campus to help in providing a healing atmosphere.

Self-guided tours are available on Friday, March 11, and Saturday, March 12. Serenity Lane’s inpatient facility is in Coburg on Industrial Way, which parallels I-5. The tours occur from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., with a grand opening ceremony on Friday at 10:30. Parking will be available on Industrial Way or the campus, with a large golf cart available to those who are disabled or have had to park at a distance.

After March 12, the facility will close to the public and begin accepting patients. Read more about the campus at http://www.serenitylane.org.
