The Visiting Nurse Association and Hospice of the Florida Keys (VNA/Hospice) recently presented Tavernier resident Jane Laduzenski with a special handmade lap quilt from the Florida Keys Quilters. Each year, the 90-member organization donates handmade quilts to support the VNA/Hospice mission of providing comfort, care and compassion. Each quilt comes with a card that states, “One who is sleeping under a quilt is sleeping under love.”
For many years, VNA/Hospice has been able to deliver quilts to patients because of generous organizations like the Florida Keys Quilters. Anyone interested in learning to quilt or enjoying some company while quilting can join the Florida Keys Quilters “Sip & Sew.” The group meets every Friday starting at 10 a.m. in the Key Largo Library located at 101485 Overseas Highway.
