Do you enjoy sewing or knitting? This groups loving creates hand-sewn, knit, or fleece blankets, pillows, pillowcases, mini-quilts, knit hats and mittens and dishcloths for local ministries. Recipient organizations include the YWCA, Spring Valley Elementary School, the Costa Rica Children’s Home, the midwife program in Sudan, and the local Binkie Patrol. Normally, the First Stitchers meet at the church on Thursday mornings, but because of the Covid-19 pandemic, volunteers are currently sewing their projects at home.
Most materials are donated, but cash donations are appreciated for the purchase of pillows and other supplies. The need for these items of comfort is great. For more information, contact Linda Lueth at 269-324-3522 or Ellen Portis at 269-343-5674.
