We had so much fun sewing the dignity pads for Ugandan women that we have scheduled another sewing bee at church on Saturday, May 19 from 10 to 3 with lunch included. This time we’re making mission quilts for Lutheran World Relief. You can Google the instructions in advance, but basically we are going to make checkered tops from 48 squares (6 across, 8 up and down). Then we’ll put a sheet on the back and filler in the middle. You don’t even have to know how to sew. We’ll also need cutters, pressers, pinners, and designers. Put the date on your calendar and stay tuned for more information.
At some time, we believe warmer weather will come. If anyone has winter items--coats, gloves, caps--that they would rather not store over the summer, we will be happy to accept them now for the community distribution in October. A bin for your donations is located in the Narthex. Thank you
