Busy hands, happy hearts at First Presbyterian Church in Farmington

Email

Hands busy trimming and pinning the material before her, 96-year-old Irene Spaniol shared a personal philosophy Tuesday morning.

"I think God gives everyone a talent, and it's up to you to use it," she said.

Spaniol has been using one of her particular talents -- quilting -- for the good of others for more than 50 years. She's part of a long-running group of quilters at Farmington's First Presbyterian Church.
