Baldwinsville quilters create dolls through Plank Road Quilt Guild

The women of the Plank Road Quilt Guild traced, sewed, cut out, stuffed and dressed 111 dolls for the Golisano Children's Hospital Pediatric Unit. The surgeons show their young patients where their incisions will be by drawing on the dolls and demonstrate the use of a "port" using the half rubber ball the ladies sewed into each doll's chest. The children select their doll from the group colorfully dressed in pajamas made by Guild members and then draw a face on their doll. Pictured are Baldwinsville members Gail Karn, Susan Monroe, Sandy Landers, Pat Timmins, Bev Narby and Pat Dickman together with other Guild members. The Quilt Guild meets the second and fourth Wednesday mornings of each month and welcomes new members and visitors. Call 652-6405 should you have any interest or want more information.
