Our third annual bike quilt is coming together thanks to a group of people who come together each Wednesday for our quilting bees. This amazing work of art will be raffled and raise money for the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition at Winterfest (Dec. 5). Anyone can join these quilting bees — no experience is necessary, we’ll provide the hand-sewing instruction. Join us this Wednesday (Nov. 3) from 6-9pm. We promise a friendly group of people, snacks and interesting conversation. Email email@example.com for address and to RSVP.
Meet Deborah Wong who is helping assemble this year’s quilt.
