Thread ‘n Yarn Ministries

Knitting/Crocheting and Quilting Ministries…

In our church, two groups are actively mixing yarn, creativity, skill, and love in order to extend the love of Christ to people in special need.  Blankets, prayer shawls, quilts, or even hats have been used to comfort people in both joyous and in difficult times…Scrappy Quilts _IMG_1133

  • Baptisms
  • Hospital Stays
  • Shut-ins
  • Cancer patients (hats)
  • Victims of Domestic Violence

Our knitting/crocheting ministries extend God’s love through the body of our church by surrounding people with the warmth of a knitted item.  Blankets are frequently placed on the altar and the congregation prays over them before the blankets are delivered.


 Two groups are currently active in this ministry:

 

Scrappy Quilters

The Scrappy Quilters meet on the third Friday of each month (from 1:00-3:00 PM) to design and Scrappy Quiltmake quilts. Our name was chosen because we use donated material and kits to make quilts.

The quilts fill many needs for people in need.  We are currently donating our quilts to a shelter for victims of domestic abuse and to the Mother and Child Shelter in Woodbury. We make both full-size and child-size quilts.

If you enjoy sewing and would like to learn how to quilt, join us at our next scheduled meeting in the Potter’s Hand Room (enter the Narthex main door, head up the stairs to your left-  or take the elevator.  We’re on the other side of the balcony that overlooks the Narthex).

For any questions, please contact Linda Boltz.

Scrappy Quilters hasn’t gotten back into full swing after the pandemic.   Normally we gather in the church building to work on our projects together. But currently, we’re sowing at home and meeting in the church to plan for the Christmas Marketplace.   Eventually we hope to return to having sewing sessions in the building, and we will resume our quilt-making for the various charities after the Christmas Marketplace (which is to be held on 11/13/21).

Hooks and Needles for God

Hooks n Needles Blankets _IMG_2101Hooks and Needles for God (Crochet/Knit) meets at 1:00 PM on Mondays in the Potter’s Hand room.  Potter’s Hand is located behind the Sanctuary on the balcony level.

It is open to all!  If you can’t come to the meetings at church, knit from home and donate your creations.

Please notify Connie Norton if you know of someone who could use a prayer shawl or if you have any questions.

 


Both groups are open to anyone interested in using whatever Yarn or Thread related skills they may have in order to bless someone in need.
