Sew What Group 

Meets Weekly Year Round


9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

sewwhat3The Sew What Group spends the vast majority of their time making quilts which are donated to human care agencies such as Lutheran World Relief who distribute them to individuals living amidst poverty, disaster, and war. They also make eyeglass cases for MOST Ministries and wheelchair/walker bags. Sewing is not a prerequisite for joining the group. Some ladies serve by cutting, piecing, and pinning quilt squares or tying the finished quilts. Others use their knitting or crocheting skills to make lap blankets for Phil’s Friends to distribute to cancer patients.   The ladies also take time each week to enjoy fellowship over a brown bag lunch. You need not stay for the whole day; come for as long as you wish. Moms, feel free to bring your preschool children.

A lively discussion about the book read, including how it relates to faith, follows based on author’s or reviewer’s questions. The group then chooses a new book to read.
