Piece Corps Quilters

Piece Corps Quilters Meet Wednesdays from 8:00 to 11:30 a.m.

The quilts created by Piece Corps Quilters are sent to Lutheran World Relief, St. Vincent DePaul, and local people in need.

We have 3 persons that work at home for us, Carol, Fern, and René. They cut blocks and sew tops together at their homes.

Other quilters working at the church are, Ellen, Hulone, Ardith, Ruth, Donna, Ali, Beth, Mae, and Joyce.

We are so thankful for all the material that is donated to this group. Many times we find bags of material left for us.

The Piece Corps Quilters invite anyone to come and help us. 500,000 quilts are needed each year for Lutheran world relief. Come and join us for fellowship and sewing.

“God’s work. Our hands.”
The Piece Corps Quilters made 575 quilts this year: Quilts went to Lutheran World Relief, St. Vincent DePaul in Monroe, and 15 quilts were sent with the Mission Trip to Pine Ridge Indian Reservation Indian Reservation in South Dakota and 40 quilts were given to local families in need.

September 27, 2015 is Quilt Sunday.
Come celebrate “God’s work. Our hands.” This year Piece Corps made over 575 quilts for distribution here in our community and by Lutheran World Relief (LWR) overseas. 15 quilts were taken to Pine Ridge Indian Reservation by the Mission Trip Team. We are thankful for all our volunteers - the sewers, fabric cutters, ironers, quilt tiers and quilt binders. We are thankful for all the donations of fabric, batting, thread and money. We are thankful for those who transport the quilts and get supplies. But most of all, we thank God that He has given us Work to do that impacts so many others. We will never know all the people who benefit from our quilts; but we know God’s Love and Work is never ending; and so each year we strive to do our best. If you know of a group or someone that needs a quilt, please contact the Piece Corps - Joyce Tessendorf (815)369-2331 or call the church office (815)369-5552. For all these Blessings and People with Busy Hands and Generous Hearts, we are Truly Thankful!
