 HATS FOR THE HOMELESS

THANK YOU to all who donated hats. We took over 100 hats to the Open Door Mission in Rochester. If you are interested in sewing, crocheting or knitting hats, mittens or scarves for the Homeless…..we would greatly appreciate it.  We will be collecting these throughout the year.

 

 

Comfort Quilts

     These quilts can be made of any material or design. We suggest that they be at least 3 ft. by 4 ft. or 4 ft. by 5 ft.

   Thank you to all who cut squares, sewed and tied to make this mission outreach possible. If anyone wants to access the material during the summer, it is located in the Women’s Fellowship room downstairs in plastic totes. We will have more opportunities in the fall for cutting and fellowship while making comfort quilts.
