American summer resident Cindy Valley showcased at library

Community news happening around the Interlakes and Bridge Lake area

An American citizen of Palm Desert who spends six months of the year here, Cindy Valley is an expert quilter whose works will be displayed in Bridge Lake Library’s Community Showcase for June.

A member of the Log Cabin Quilters, Cindy says: “I’ve quilted for 13 years and it’s become a really interesting hobby. I’ve given a few classes and my display will [include] purses, wall hangings and quilts.”

Cindy’s works of art are also often entered in Bridge Lake Fair.
