Event:  Quilt for a Cause
Date:  Sat, January 19, 2019
Time:  10am to 3pm
Place:  LUMC Fellowship Hall
Contact:  Jane Amelon
Quilt for a Cause meets once a month, the third Saturday of the month.  We meet 10am to 3pm but often members bring a bag lunch and quilt through the afternoon.  It is a relaxed get-together, with participants coming and going according to their personal schedules.   
The LUMC quilting group is open to all - church members, friends, neighbors, all ages!  We are all Christian women following God’s call for service and having fun.  Our skill levels range from beginner to experienced so even if you've never quilted before, you'll fit right in - this is the place to learn.  Our gifted, fun-loving (and patient) leaders are Jane Amelon and Chris Walker and the quilting group was born in January of 2011 out of their love for quilting and desire to share that with others and give back to our community at the same time.
