Quilters-Corner

Quilter's Corner

“Tied in faith, sent in hope, wrapped in love.”
Mission quilting days are the 2nd & 4th Mondays, starting at 9:00 AM. You are welcome to come and go as you please, but if you would like to bring your own lunch and stay until 1:30, we would love to see you! Masks are still required, until further notice.

Looking forward, the primary need is fabric donation for making quilt tops. All fabric must be clean and in new to like-new condition. As always, cash donations are welcome

Beautiful quilts available!

Calvary Quilters are encouraging a minimum $50 donation. With costs of quilting material going up, this will ensure approximately 4 more quilts to be made for mission work.
Quilts will be available for purchase in the office (Monday-Thursday 8AM-2PM.)

Thank you for supporting mission quilting!

Prayer Shawl Knitters

What a blessing this ministry has been to so many needing comfort! And it continues as several women continue to make shawls and bring them to the office for the pastor’s and others to give as needed. YOU can be a part of this too! Just pick up some yarn and start knitting or crocheting!

If you have questions, please contact Marilyn Klettenberg 218-732-9043.
