Charmed for Charity

How about a little Charity Therapy? Quilts from the Bluffs, our local quilt ministry, and Cut up & Quilt Shop are partnering to add some quilting time to their efforts.
A daytime group will meet the third Wednesday from 1:00-3:00 pm beginning on January 15, 2014 and an evening group meets on the 1st Thursday from 6:00-8:00 pm beginning on February 6, 2014.
The sessions will consist of cutting scrap fabric (provided) into 5” squares (charms), sewing the squares into quilt tops, and/or putting squares into quilt kits that can then be distributed to other quilters. Bring rotary cutter/ruler/mat or sewing machine or just come willing to help.  Quilts will be given to Project Linus (juvenile) or Mercy Hospital (adult).   4-Hers can learn to cut with a rotary cutter, piece 5” squares to make a quilt top, or put squares together into kits.  There will be volunteers there to help anyone get started with this project. 
Put it on your calendar and help the community!  Great service project for individuals or groups of friends, girls and boys alike to make a difference is another person’s life.
