Six libraries are participating – Coopersville Area, Gary Byker (Hudsonville), Georgetown, Herrick, Loutit, and Spring Lake. A Quilt Hop Library Card, punched by at least 3 participating libraries, will put you in the running for a $25 gift certificate from a local quilt shop. Highlights of the month include a special kickoff event featuring Marsha MacDowell of MSU with a Zoom program on The Quilt Index: Michigan & World Quilt History, classes, demos, mystery quilt blocks, free bookcase quilt pattern, and displays. This will be Thursday, March 3, at 6:30 via Zoom. Register via Quilt Hop Library
