Quilts show care from Naperville store to Aurora seniors
A sewing store that opened in November in Naperville made good on the local part of its promise Wednesday to "help out globally" and "sew locally."
Gayle Schliemann, co-owner of BERNINA of Naperville, delivered quilts Wednesday morning to the Alden of Waterford rehabilitation center in Aurora.
Store customers and employees made the quilts during a three-day sew-a-thon when the shop opened. Schliemann said she chose to give them to the rehabilitation center as a way to pay tribute to her late mother and to show seniors they are not forgotten.
