Dedicated Newbies!

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! 

Newbies, you're invited to join Hope Quilters for a day of sewing. Whether you spend your time making or finishing a Stitchin' Mission quilt, or helping with one of Hope Quilters' mission quilts, we'd love to have you join us.
We're meeting at Lutheran Church of Hope on Saturday, February 5 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in room 214. Please bring a sack lunch and drink, and RSVP here. You don't need to be a member of Lutheran Church of Hope to join our group.
May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may give glory to God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 15:5 (NIV)
