Quilting Bee

On November 3 and 4, 2010 I will be hosting a quilting bee at First Lutheran Church where a small group of people will be making quilts for Lutheran World Relief. They are a relief organization that distributes supplies to people in need and they have a need for quilts. Quilts provide shelter and warmth to people who desperately need both.

I would gladly welcome donations of extra fabric you may have and also materials for lining the quilts. Lining materials could be old flannel sheets, quilted mattress pads, bedspreads, heavy curtains (not fibreglass) or old blankets. It's okay if they have holes in them as they can be patched up. The quilts need to measure 60 x 80 so it would be helpful if the lining material was at least this size.

We are starting small and hope to make several quilts over these two days. If you want to help, you are welcome to do so. You don't have to know how to sew as there are plenty of other jobs to do. Lunch will even be provided!

If you have an interest in helping - whether it be through donating material or time - please email me at bencer99 (at) hotmail (dot) com and just let me know! Thanks for reading.
