Welcome to a new year of Quilt-making for Lutheran World Relief! The first Quilting work sessions of the this new year took place on on Saturday, March 13 and Tuesday, March 16 and will continue taking place the second Saturday (9am-noon) and following Tuesday (12:30-3pm) of each month until the Blessing of the Quilts in September 2021.
We have been asked to remind all participants of the following safety precautions:
- For vaccinated persons, wearing a mask is optional
- Unvaccinated persons are asked to wear a mask
- All are asked to please wash your hands and/or use hand sanitizer (available in the Narthex and Quilting Area)
- All are asked to respect social distancing
Our shelves are packed with Quilt tops ready to be assembled! Thank you to everyone responsible for getting us off to a great start!
Once we have assembled Quilts, we will most likely need people to sew perimeters and complete tying in their homes. Please let Andrea know if you are willing to zig-zag perimeters and/or tie quilts at home and she will coordinate “homework assignments”.
Plans for Future Work Sessions
Phyllis and Andrea are hopeful that we can safely continue work sessions, continuing on the second Saturday and following Tuesday of each month March – September, concluding with the “Blessing of the Quilts” September 25th & 26th. We’ll keep you posted.
In the meantime, take care, keep safe. Peace Be With You!
