Piecemakers is 33 years old this year! We began in November, 1988 with a small, but mighty few. Our hope was to serve God’s people while creating utility quilts out of unwanted, forgotten fabric. Over the years we’ve helped dispose of many of your old Aunt Mabel’s fabric stashes and we’ve created 1,542 quilts. Our recipients have been near and far, but all were needing to be shown that God’s people care for them.
We appreciate all the donations over the years of fabric, yarn, batting and time. We currently have over 50 quilt tops sandwiched and ready to tie and probably that many tops sewn together and ready to be put together with backs. All other fabric has been cut into 8 ½” squares and are ready to be sewn into tops. Tina Morawski and I have gone through all our supply of fabric and tidied up our little corner of the attic where we keep all those unwanted treasures of fabric. I guess what I’m saying is, we do not need any more fabric at this time but what we do need is your help. Like I said, Piecemakers is 33 years old and that means we’re 33 years older too.
If you would like to join our mighty few, we gather for fellowship and tying of quilts on the 4th Monday of each month beginning in September through April. We do not meet in December and we have a potluck the first Monday in June to finish out the year. We meet in Fellowship Hall from 12-3 and we ALWAYS have a treat. There are no sewing skills necessary. If you can tie a knot, you can do this.
The Piecemakers meet each 4th Monday from 12 to 3 pm September through May, with a party held in June. There is no meeting in December due to Christmas.
If you have any questions, call Pat Stratman at (513) 319-4201.
