OLD FORGE — Fiber Arts, an exhibit by the Pointed Pine Quilters, will be on display at Old Forge Library, 220 Crosby Blvd., from Sept. 7 to Sept. 29.

The library will host an opening reception for the exhibit and the artists on Friday, Sept. 7 at 5 p.m., which is open to the public.

The Pointed Pine Quilters are an organization founded locally in the early 1970s that pool their talent and resources to work communally on large quilts. The group also has a history of philanthropic fundraising, making quilts for View, the Big Moose Chapel, St. Bartholomew’s Church, the American Legion’s Wounded Warrior Project, and the Old Forge Historical Association.

The Pointed Pine Quilters meet at Old Forge Library on Tuesdays at 1 p.m., and those interested in quilting are encouraged to visit.
