For the past two Mondays, newbies and Rebekahs in Stitchin' Mission have had to contend with less-than-favorable weather. And whenever the weather makes life challenging, there's always a concern that newbies will simply give up and drop out.
While two-thirds of registered newbies stayed home, missing the second lesson (rotary cutting and piecing), only three newbies missed the third lesson (making a quilt sandwich and tying it).
Now we know for sure... neither snow, nor ice, nor cold could keep these dedicated Stitchin' Mission-ers from making quilts!
When everyone's willing to give and take, persevering and encouraging one another through the quiltmaking process, it's simply a beautiful experience.
Thank you Rebekahs...
...and thank you newbies!
Keep up the great work, and keep havin' fun!
