Wednesday mornings between 9:30 and 12 noon are “Quilting Time” when 8 ladies meet to construct quilts and lap robes for organizations in the Kokomo community. Using donated fabrics, the ladies design and sew adult and children’s quilts to be given to needy tornado families, homeless women and men, oncology patients in our two hospitals, and other needy persons and organizations.
It is easy to find the quilters as the sounds of their laughing and talking fill the halls in the church. The aim of the group is to have fun while working together to make warm, colorful quilts to give away. After a busy morning, they may stop for a coffee or tea break and to plan the next recipients of the quilts.
Any people who enjoy working with fabrics is encouraged to join these ladies any Wednesday. There are sewing machines available, just bring scissors and enthusiasm.
(Webmaster’s Note: In the age of the me-too movement, are we saying that men would be excluded?)
