(Chelsea Update would like to thank Emily Meloche for photos and the information in this story.)
The C.A.A.D.Y. quilters are back with their annual display in Gallery 100; a favorite of the Silver Maples and Chelsea community.
The quilts on display are representative of the quilts the C.A.A.D.Y. Corner Quilters group donates to local organizations. The majority of the quilts are given to patients at the University of Michigan’s Bone Marrow Transplant Unit. Chelsea’s Faith in Action and St. Louis Center also receive quilts for their annual fundraising activities. In this exhibit, there are no identification tags to indicate who made a quilt, as each is a collaborative effort.
C.A.A.D.Y. began over 20 years ago, with members from Chelsea, Ann Arbor, Dexter, and Ypsilanti (C.A.A.D.Y.) The group meets at the Chelsea Senior Center every Tuesday afternoon.
Current members: Dee Burkel, Colleen Carey, Sally Dickinson, Jill Fairchild, Judy Flint, Mary Jo Freitas, Pat Hepburn, Kitty Jensen, Cindy Jovanelly, Cheryl Kraft, Pat Kraska, Doris Lemcke, Mary Randolf, Ann Rogers, KayJanet Silkworth, Kathi Sporer, and Charlotte Wyche.
Gallery 100 is located at 100 Silver Maples Dr. and is open to the public Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m., Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
The quilts will be on display through February.
