YOUTH & FAITH QUILTERS
The Faith Quilters are happy to invite any interested youth to join us June 6, June 27, and July 18 at our meetings in room 100 from 10:00am -2:00pm (or any part of that time they are available). The Faith Quilters will offer sewing instruction as the youth help to create Project Linus quilts. Email Karla Temple for more information and to RSVP at email@example.com.
Third Tuesday of Each Month 10:00 am – 2:00pm | Room 100
(quilting from home is also welcome)
Faith Quilters gather for fellowship and work in Room 100 every third Tuesday of each month except December. From 10:00am to 2:00pm we iron, cut, audition, and stitch cotton fabric for quilts. We welcome new participants, experienced at quilting or not. All piecing and quilting is machine sewn. For individuals who cannot meet during the group’s scheduled days, we can produce kits that contain fabric squares, backing, batting, and instructions for a quilt. They are available on request (see contacts below) and upon completion, can be returned to St Paul’s information desk. All of our quilts stay in the local area and are distributed here through Project Linus, a national non-profit organization with chapters in all 50 states. Over 7 million quilts, afghans, and fleece blankets have been donated since 1995.
Louisville area Project Linus quilts go to children (newborn to age 18) who are served by such organizations as Norton Children’s Hospital, The Center for Women and Families, Ronald McDonald House, and Wayside Christian Mission. Faith Quilters at St. Paul began in 2003. As of June 2022, 1,615 handmade quilts have been donated by this small group. For more information or if you want to join us, email Marg Suffill. Both women and men sewists are welcome!
Here is a sampling of the quilts they have made:
