Quilters - A dedicated group of women who meet Tuesday afternoons and Thursday mornings each week at church to sew and tie quilts for people locally and around the world through Lutheran World Relief. Materials are provided. No experience necessary. Please join us for fellowship with busy hands.
Imagine the comfort that comes with a hug when someone is in a time of deepest need. Through a simple combination of fabric and thread, the Quilting Ladies have reached out to those with some of the greatest needs in the world, not wrapping them in their arms, but wrapping them in the work of their hands through the making of Quilts for Lutheran World Relief.
If you have never witnessed the quilters in action you have no idea the time that goes into making these quilts. Sorting through donations, opening seams to attain suitable pieces to sew together, then cutting the pieces to make them fit together, ironing the pieces to lay flat for sewing, matching the pieces together to form a quilt, sewing the squares, pressing seams open, tying each quilt, then pinning the sides together for the final sewing. The quilts are then packed ten quilts in a box and labeled.
MATERIALS ALWAYS NEEDED:
Large pieces of new and good used fabric, except fiberglass. Old bed sheets for fillers. CLEAN MATERIALS PLEASE. Bright colored yarn. Donated materials should be clearly marked "QUILTING" and left downstairs under the coat rack.
Knitting - The group meets Monday afternoons at 1:00 PM in the church's reception room for fellowship and to knit or crochet items that are shared with local hospitals, nursing homes, and people in need of a healing touch. Come to share, visit and knit or crochet with the group. Joyce Loritz, Chair.
