"The Piecemakers" Quilting Ministry
- * If you've been wanting to make a difference with your quilting, "The Piecemakers" may be just what you're looking for. This ministry is open to everyone in the community (both church members and non-church members) who quilt, or wish to learn.
- * We meet on the first Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
- * Photos from various ministry events may be viewed at the Photos page of this website.
- * The ministry is in need of supplies. Even if you aren't a quilter, donations of cash or cotton fabric are gratefully accepted. We've been blessed with support from several quilters, as well as donations from The Pieceful Gathering Quilt Shop in Fox River Grove, for which we are very thankful. But we'll always be about one "sew-in" ahead of an empty fabric cupboard, so your help would be appreciated.
