When life throws you scraps, you make quilts
by Katy Heinecke
Courier Staff Writer
You may have heard of the Grace Lutheran Quilters, but you probably have no idea what an organized group of busy bees are gathering each week to construct quilts from the ground up. These gals meet at Grace Lutheran Church every Monday morning from 9:00 a.m. until noon, and each person has their designated position within a long line of strategic work stations. You don’t have to be a quilter and you don’t have to be a member of Grace Lutheran Church to join this group of ladies. Just show up and they will put you to work. If you can operate a pair of scissors, they will take you!For the rest of the Quilter story please buy a copy of this weeks newspapers on news stand now..
