January Work Day

Hope Quilters met Saturday, January 12th for a day of fellowship and quilting.

We've been working on quilts for several groups, including the Okoboji Bible Camp's Christopherhaus Dormitory, Children & Families of Iowa Women's Shelter, Mercy Hospital PICU and Riverside Bible Camp 2013 Quilt Auction.  A number of the quilts have been quilted and are ready to be completed with binding and labeling.

Several Hope Quilters made and donated two quilts to Mentor Iowa.  We presented them to Marty L and Kevin O at the January work day.

We're still looking for people to make altar cloths using the fabrics brought back from Ghana.  These altar cloths will be given to the new churches provided by LCOH's 2012 Lenten project "40 Churches in 40 Days".  The mission teams will deliver the altar cloths on the 2013 trips to Ghana.  Praise God!  There are some 120 new churches being built in Ghana from that project.

January 12th Work Day

Hope Quilters will meet at 8:30 on Saturday, January 12th for a day of fellowship and quilting.   Come for all or part of the day.  Bring your lunch.

Representatives from Mentor Iowa will attend the meeting to explain what their program does in working with youth in our community.  Hope Quilters has donated two quilts for their upcoming auction.

There are a number of mission projects we're working on including the Okoboji Christopherhaus Dormitory quilts, Children & Families of Iowa - Domestic Violence Services, Mercy PICU, Riverside Bible Camp 2013 Quilt Auction and One Body - Adults quilt project on "The Story".  We're also working on the designs and sewing of the altar cloths for the church plants in Ghana.
