Creative Textiles students deliver hand-made items

Students in Mrs. hexum’s Creative Textiles class took time yesterday to deliver the quilts and bags they made.

They made lap quilts for the residents at Pioneer Care, and they made a carry-all bag and winter hat for clients at Someplace Safe.

Way to give back to the community!
