Quilt Making Mission Trip to Rose Hill,
April 27-30, 2021

Ladies! We are planning a trip to Rose Hill for a Tuesday-Friday mission to make quilts for families who have had Disaster Relief of NC repair their houses after hurricanes that hit our east coast.  Each family will receive a handmade quilt as a gift as they move back into their homes.
We would like to extend this trip to quilters, but also people who have never sewn before. We will be offering quilting classes ahead of the trip on Monday evenings from 6:30-8:30pm in March and April. The cost of the mission trip is $40 per person which includes lodging and food. Currently, because of COVID protocols, we have a maximum of 10 people we can bring so sign up quickly. For more information, please contact Dawn Mathews at 828-962-5255 or our Associational office at 828-437-0137.
