The Wilson UMC Quilters Group is open to anyone who is interested in quilting, whether you’re a member of Wilson UMC or not. Pre-COVID, we met monthly on the 4th Monday at 7 pm at the church for Show & Tell, conversation/problem solving and treats. Now, we keep in touch by email with virtual Show & Tell, and news about activities. We hope to be able to schedule some future meetings in person, maybe in a park, or by Zoom.
A big part of the quilters activities has always been (and still is) quilt-related charity and mission projects. These have included mask makings, pillowcases for Ryan’s Case for Smiles, quilts for CASA, Operation Kid Comfort, Quilts of Valor and fidget quilts for Alzheimer’s patients.
Below is a pic of Patriotic star blocks we made for Quilts of Valor, a national organization that creates quilts for service members and veterans touched by war.
