Franklin Garden Club: Paper Quilling Workshop - Sep 3

The Franklin Garden Club will begin its 2019-2020 season on Tuesday, September 3, 2019, with a meeting at the Franklin Senior Center, 10 Daniel Cahill Street, from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. An informal social get-together will take place from 6:30 – 7:00 p.m. followed by a Paper Quilling Workshop

The meeting is open to the public, including those interested in becoming a member. The meeting will also feature an optional perennial swap and friendship arrangements. Those attending may bring a perennial cutting from their garden to swap, as well as some cut flowers for the arrangements.

Club Co-Presidents Susan Childers and Deborah DeGrazia stated, “The Garden Club, founded in 1987, offers many educational programs, and one does not have to be a Master Gardener to join. Meetings provide a wonderful opportunity to learn about various aspects of gardening from experts and to exchange information with fellow members. We welcome anyone who is interested to attend the first meeting to learn more about the Club and planned activities.”

The Paper Quilling Workshop will be led by DeGrazia and supplies will be provided. Paper quilling is the art of cutting paper into long thin strips, rolling and pinching the pieces into different shapes, and then gluing the shapes together to form decorative art. Paper quilling projects can be used to decorate cards, boxes, gift bags, picture frames, or even be made into 3D stand-alone art pieces. (

Club community service activities include planting and maintenance of the Franklin Town Common gardens and the planters at the Franklin Library, sponsorship of an annual scholarship awarded to a high school graduate, distribution of pine tree seedlings in the elementary schools, and special projects with other community organizations. The Franklin Garden Club is a member of the Garden Club Federation of Massachusetts.
