This year’s the special children’s feature was to “make a fish”. The children’s fish will be made into a crib quilt. In the spring the quilt will be displayed in the Wautoma Public Library and at next year’s quilt show.

Pine Tree Needlers also had a boutique where members sold items they had made throughout the year. The PTN members are already making plans for next year’s show, and meet the fourth Wednesday of every month at 9 a.m. at the Mountain View Community Center in Mt. Morris.
