Jersey Shore Makerfest 2017 at the Arena High School North, Toms River was a wonderful experience not only for families and children of all ages but also for those of us who shared life skills, math, technology, science, and art. I haven't seen so many messy children having fun with glue and markers since I was a Girl Scout leader in the '90's! We accomplished our mission of teaching quilting arts to a different group and a much wider audience than we see at our quilt shows.
A side bonus is that we marketed our guild and our 2018 Quilt Show. Thank you to Pat L, Dina and Bob N, Kristen and Hannah A, for all of the hard work they put into this event. When I spoke to the Superintendant of T.R. Schools, he was thrilled with our effort and wanted to get up close to see those blankets!
