Cle Elum Artists on Display

A generous group of quilters in Cle Elum spends a lot of time sewing for Virginia Mason Memorial’s tiniest patients.  Quilts, receiving blankets, travel blankets, and other infant items are their special focus.  They have created scores of custom designs for our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and Pediatric patients.  Now you have a chance to view their handiwork!

The Carpenter House Museum and Art Gallery at 302 W Third Street, Cle Elum, is presenting a very special showing of the group’s quilts, between June 30 – July 27.  Afterward, many of the quilts will be donated to The Memorial Foundation for Memorial’s pediatric and hospice patients.  The Carpenter House is open Friday through Sundays, Noon – 4:00 PM.  If you attend on July 8, some of the artists will be in attendance.  And, they’ll have cookies!

Take a scenic drive, enjoy the quilted art show, and stop in at the Cle Elum Dairy Queen for their Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® fundraising campaign benefitting, you guessed it…children’s health care programs and services at Virginia Mason Memorial, your local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.
