Hope Quilters to be featured in DM Register

The "Hope Quilters", a group from Lutheran Church of Hope in West Des Moines is being
featured at the August 1 quilt auction which will benefit the ministry of Ingham Okoboji Lutheran
Bible Camps. The group was chosen for its faithfulness in donating many beautiful quilts to
IOLBC over many years. These ladies are on a mission "to serve God in the world by making
quilts that give warmth, comfort and support for those in need." Hope Quilters began as a small
group which made one quilt its first year and currently is creating and donating over 90 quilts a
year to needy people locally and globally. Jody Eubank, chairperson of the group, shared that
the organizations who receive their quilts are those that are supported by the church. The group
is blessed with donations of fabrics and is pleased that the church has the space to store the
needed supplies. Jody encourages people from all skill levels to participate. She has made
various kits to get beginners started. Quilters are not required to be members of the church.
These ladies are wonderful representatives of a church whose mission is to "Reach out to the
world around us and share the everlasting love of Jesus Christ." To learn more about Hope
Quilters, visit and to learn more about IOLBC visit
