SM #18 - Last Class

This evening was the last Stitchin' Mission #18 class at Johnston Evangelical Free Church. Quilters sewed labels to their quilts, posed for group and individual photos, received a brief label lesson, and then celebrated.

We thank Carole Reeves for making these machine embroidered labels in Romanian and English.
Look at all those smiling faces, and quilts!
And remember the cookie lady, Susan Cerrillo, from the first class? She was at it again. Goodness she's talented! Does this look exactly like the Stitchin' Mission logo or what!?
To everyone's delight, the cake tasted as fabulous as it looked. How thoughtful that Susan made it half chocolate and half white. It was a treat for all of us!
SMers who were unable to finish their quilts to turn in this evening still have two weeks to do so. By Friday, October 16 drop off your quilt at the church office to have it included in the church's quilt display on Sunday, October 18.

Everyone is invited to see the quilts.
Invite your family and friends, and come for worship at 8:00 a.m. or 10:30 a.m.

In the Tuesday, October 6 Des Moines Register, look for an article about Stitchin' Mission by Reporter Michael Morain and Photographer Bill Neibergall.

At this time, no other Stitchin' Mission is planned for the Des Moines area. If you would like to host a Stitchin' Mission at your church in January/February 2010, contact me.
