GLOVERSVILLE, NEW YORK (March 20, 2017) – In honor of National Quilting Day, the Gloversville Sew Busy Quilt Guild recognized Littauer’s Birthing Center newborn Asher Killian Betters with a hand-crafted quilt. Asher, the son of Jackie Betters and Brady Guy of Gloversville was born on March 18, at 10:11 p.m., weighing 8 lbs. He joins a sister Trinity, 7 years-old.
“This is beautiful,” said Jackie Betters, as she expressed her thanks. “The quilt matches perfectly with the baby’s nursery theme.”
Representing the Sew Busy Quilt Guild were quilters Nancy Frank and Joanne Gasner. For the past 9 years, the organization has been donating quilts to the Littauer baby born closest to National Quilting Day. National Quilting Day takes place annually on the third Saturday in March. Baby Asher happened to be born exactly on this year’s date.
“This is a labor of love for us,” said Nancy Frank. “We enjoy this special project every year.”
The Sew Busy Quilt Guild meets on the third Monday of the month at the Church of the Holy Spirit in Gloversville, and holds a sit and sew session every second Monday.
