Willington on the Way is happy to announce that two of Willington's brick store buildings will soon house a local sewing and quilting group known as "Community Threads."
The group will occupy the former Burnette Store and the Willington Bank Building as soon as some needed repairs are completed. They will have not only a workshop for their quilting and sewing projects but also a retail store as an outlet for their products. This group is already meeting once a month in the History Center, but is looking forward to having more space for their work when their move into the other buildings has been completed. They are an exciting addition to the Willington community.
The Willington Bookshop has reduced its prices on all hardback fiction from $3.00 to $1.50. This includes mysteries, thrillers, classics, Southern fiction, historical fiction, science fiction, and romance novels.

Red spider lilies ("Radiata Gloriosa') are in bloom! These beautiful lilies were first grown in Willington in 1851, when a local doctor, Dr. James Morrow, accompanied Commodore Perry on his voyage to open up trade with Japan and Okinawa, and, at the request of the U.S. government, brought them and other plants back to the States.
Spider lily bulbs are for sale at the Willington Bookshop at $5.00 for ten bulbs. They bloom only once a year...the last week of August through the first week of September.
