New Jersey quilters: Contribute to a Peace Quilt at Fabricland 

A team works on the 2012 Peace Quilt at Fabricland in North Plainfield. Quilters are invited to celebrate International Peace Day at Fabricland in North Plainfield by contributing their skills and energy to a Peace Quilt at any time during the store's operating hours on Friday, Sept. 21.

International Peace Day was established on Sept. 21, 2001 as a day of global ceasefire and non-violence. To observe this day, the fabric store and home design center will provide quilting tools and materials at its Sewing School, allowing members of New Jersey's quilting community to come together to produce quilts that will be donated to area charitable organizations.

Nancy Plominski, sewing school director, expects to assemble up to five quilts on Friday, depending on the number of participants. Previous Peace Quilts have been donated to the American Red Cross, Shelter our Sisters and other area homeless shelters.

The Peace Quilt event is free and open to quilters -- and those interested in quilting -- regardless of sewing skill level.  Participants must be at least 10 years old, however. While Fabricland will provide materials, quilters are welcome to bring their own sewing tools and any fabric they would like to contribute.
