“Do you like sewing? Would you like to join with other members in our Circuit to help in making quilts for the children in the village in Bulgaria where Julya (Walsh) lives?”
Janice Swankie, of St John’s Methodist Church, Arbroath is contacting the Circuit’s churches as she is hoping to set up a “sewing project” as part of our common community outreach.
She would like to start a community sewing project within the 5 churches in our circuit and is inviting help from anyone interested.
“You don’t need any special skills. We need people who can sew a straight line with a sewing machine, cut material and iron the blocks for assembling into quilts.”
Support could also be offered through donations of fleece blankets, cotton material and “wadding layers”.
Janice suggests that this would not only be a worthwhile project in itself but give a chance to meet and get to know each other better, with time for chat, laughter and “a cup of tea”.
If you are interested in hearing more, please contact Janice.
