Dorcas Quilters and Stitchers: Lutheran World Relief sent an “Emergency Update” plea to our quilters following Hurricane Maria’s devastation in Puerto Rico. Also included was flooding in Nepal and India which washed away crops, brink of famine in South Sudan. Yes, our quilts are desperately needed as well as financial support. Mail donations to: Lutheran World Relief, PO Box 17061, Baltimore, MD 21297-1061. (Address is 700 Light St., Baltimore, MD 21230.)
Even with two ‘snow day’ cancellations since January, we are getting closer to reaching our goal of 75 completed utilitarian quilts for Lutheran World Relief by end of April. Each week finds us enjoying our time working toward this goal … come down to the lower level of our church any Thursday between 10:30 and noon and you will see us in action! You may even wish to join us!!
Perhaps you recently saw on Socialmedia@stmarkNT.org the special quilt made by three of our ladies. One of our members donated the beautiful ‘Amy Butler designed’ fabric (thank you!.) Three of our ladies machine-quilted it in ‘sections,’ then one lady completed this 64″ x 88″ special quilt. It was auctioned to the highest bidder to raise funds for our Dorcas supplies. Thanks again to all donors and volunteers who assist or work on these mission quilts … by sharing our God-given gifts, we are blessed to be a blessing to others!
