Crazy for quilts: Group makes 15 quilts in two days for good cause

STEPHENS CITY — How many quilts can you make in two days?
A Bink-A-Thon organized by local resident Jacquetta Owen produced 15 children’s quilts that will be donated to the Stephens City Police Department to comfort youngsters in stressful situations.
For the unfamiliar, a Bink-A-Thon is an event where a group makes as many quilts as possible to give to a good cause.
Owen’s Bink-A-Thon was held March 20-21 at Stephens City United Methodist Church. Participants in the “Binky Patrol” included Diane Clawson, Denise Jensen, Janet Foote, Deborah Phillips and Mary Beth Powell.
