This month, the Comforters of Messiah Lutheran Church are conducting a silent quilt auction. The auction includes ten beautiful handmade quilts that were lovingly created by the comforters. The funds raised from this auction will be used throughout the year to support the comforter ministries.
The Comforters having been making quilts for those in need since 2003. During their first year, they made 63 quilts. This year they have created over 100 quilts which will be donated to a number of worthy causes.
The Comforters are a self sustaining ministry. Each year in November, they raffle off some of their quilts in order to raise the funds needed to continue their ministry. They are always in need of supplies and would welcome any donations of Fabric (no knits or stretch fabric), Thread, Twin sheets for backs. Cash can also be donated for supplies.
The group meets each Tuesday at 9 AM until 3 PM. You are welcome to participate during any portion of the day. The group will also be happy to teach you some quilting skills.
