WATCH: Police Officers Make Quilts After Responding to Medical Emergency

It’s never too late to learn how to make a quality quilt, even if you’re one of Burlington City’s finest.

Police were called to Olde City Quilts on High Street in Burlington, New Jersey Sunday for a medical emergency after a student in a quilt-making class fell ill. The officers arrived and determined the student was okay. A few of the officers then decided to show off their quilt-making skills, a moment that was captured on video and later shared on Facebook.

“My grandmom taught me how to do this when I was 12,” one officer said. “I was a professional quilter and then I became a cop."

The second officer in the video wasn’t quite as confident and asked the teachers for help before he started sewing. Both Olde City Quilts and Burlington City Police shared the video on their Facebook pages.

“We encourage community oriented interactions with the community,” a Burlington Police spokesperson said.
