    The Log Cabin Quilters met on Feb. 3 at the Levy County Quilt Museum. Our days are so busy. We had eight big bags of fabric brought in – some we can use and some we have to find another place for it to go.  We know what we cannot use and the other place can use the fabric.
    The Chiefland Homemakers use a lot and we share with them. We do have several bags of size 16 men’s clothing that we have available for the taking.
