The Great Winter Warm Up

Thank you so much to all those who came out to make our Great Winter Warm Up day a great success. Over the course of the day 24 people came and contributed. It was a day of creating quilts and also visiting with friends.

Linda Dickinson ( MCC Alberta resource coordinator) said she was sure she saw one of the quilts we had made in a recent visit to Zambia. That’s why we do what we do - to give comfort through a warm blanket.

 

 

Ladies' Quilting

The quilting ministry sends many high-quality quilts to needy people via MCC and The Mustard Seed. Countries like Bosnia, Jordan, North Korea and Ukraine have received thousands of quilts in the last few years.  We at Linden MB are only a small part of the people in the Americas and Europe who contribute to this larger ministry. We like to address local needs as well, and have given comforters to both Calgary and Red Deer Mustard Seed.

Quilt making is a process and we need various talents.  Being able to sew a relatively straight seam is definitely necessary for putting the pieces together. But before that happens we need someone who is somewhat a perfectionist to cut the squares.  Materials are provided. We need someone with an eye for color to arrange the pieces in a pleasing manner and we have a number of other non-sewing opportunities as well, such as preparing tea & coffee for our coffee break.  

A huge THANK YOU to all of you who have worked at home and at church to keep our quilting ministry going.
