The quilters group meets once a month in the Annex from 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. If you have an interest in making quilts and joing others in fellowship as you quilt, please join us as our need is greater than our small group of quilters. The next meeting is Monday, August 12. Contact Sandy Nelson. We are also looking for women interested in sewing together quilt tops.  We have pre-cut and assembled kits for simple quilt tops.  After you sew the squares together our group will then complete the quilting, binding & delivering of the quilts.  Help us to be the “hands of the Lord” for the needy and hurting people in our community.

The quilters also make shorts and sundresses for children to send along with our Mission Teams.  They are in need of: rickrack, ribbon or eyelet trim (up to 1" wide); extra-wide double bias tape (1/2" finished); lace hem tape (1/2" wide); sets of matching buttons; elastic (1/2" and non-roll elastic 3/4" or 1" wide).

When Pino Lella's family home in Milan is destroyed by Allied bombs, Pino joins an Underground Railroad helping Jews escape over the Alps.  In an attempt to protect him, Pino's parents force him to enlist as a German soldier - a move they think will keep him out of combat.  He became the personal driver for Adolf Hitler's left hand in Italy, General Hans Leyers. Now, with the opportunity to spy for the Allies inside the German High Command, Pino endures the horrors of the war and the Nazi occupation by fighting in secret.  Contact Book Club Coordinator: Mimi Cudzilo.  Try www.amazon.com or www.half.com for used copies of books.
