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.
