Prayer Quilters and Friends,
Many thanks to Laura Rollins for hosting our annual Christmas Tea! We enjoyed good conversation and many delicious treats. A reminder that our fabric is stored in my storage unit. If you need or want fabric or batting, please let me know several days ahead of our next meeting.
Seeking new members: We welcome new members to our group. Sewing skills are helpful but not required. Anyone interested in praying for those in need, as well as those who like to sew and/or quilt, should check out our group. As noted above, basic sewing skills are nice but not required to participate in this group. If you want to learn to quilt, you can! We’re willing to teach basic quilting skills to teens and above.
Prayer and Quilt Requests: Anyone may request prayers and a quilt for someone. We welcome prayer requests. We offer quilts when they are available. We make mini quilts, including patriotic ones, and lap-size prayer quilts.
Cleaning Out and Request for donations: If you are cleaning out and have a stash of cotton fabric you no longer need or want, please consider giving it to us. We may claim to have “enough” fabric but we can always use more of it! We welcome donations of 100% cotton fabric to use in making prayer quilts. If you have fabric to donate, please contact me (Bryn), as noted below or take to the church office marked for Prayers & Squares. This year we’ve been blessed to receive very nice donated fabric, plus quilting books and patterns. Many thanks to the donors!
Save the date for the 2018 Retreat at Shrine Mont: The Fiber Arts Prayer Quilt Retreat is scheduled for May 14-18, 2018. We will have three or four night options.
Meetings are usually held on Friday afternoons from 1 to 5 PM: Please feel free to invite someone to join us, including friends who do not attend St. George’s Church. Please let me know what month you can host or help to host in 2018.
March 10: Our March 10 workshop has been postponed. For questions and/or information about Prayers & Squares, please contact Bryn Roth.

A note about quilts: Please ask prospective recipients if we may pray for them and give them a quilt. You may ask a relative, if the individual is unable to speak for him or herself. If you give out a quilt, please let me know the person’s name, reason for giving him or her the quilt, and any other pertinent information.
Thanks for all of your efforts praying for people and making quilts!
