The Dorcas Quilters of Pacific Hills hosted a sew-in event in Acker Hall on Saturday, November 19, 2019.  The group's 4 members made up 24 kits with instructions to be pieced and quilted for Project Hope.

12 machines were loaned by Ellen Lessmann, all circa 1940's-1970's in perfect working order.  Remember the machine your grandma sewed on?  One just like it was probably being used on Saturday. 

A delicious lunch was provided by Joann Stastny; she even fed the clean-up crew that was working outside. 

Eight ladies joined in to finish 12 tops, 2 of which are completely finished and 4 more ready to be tied.  One young lady pieced a top all by herself with very little supervision.

The Dorcas Quilters usually meet the first and third Monday evenings in Acker Hall at 6:30 pm throughout the year.  All are welcome to join, but it's a good idea to contact a member to be sure there hasn't been a schedule change.  Members include Joann Stastny, Ellen Lessmann, Nancy Stuckenschmidt and Joan Workman.  Contact information is in the directory or can be obtained from the church office.
