    Quilt-A-Thon Collection
    What is the connection between spring cleaning and Calvary's Quilt-a-thon?
    Do you have unused sewing tools, fabrics and notions taking up space? Would you like Calvary's sewers and quilters to help you out?

    During the month of April, there will be a donation bin in the narthex for collecting your unused items. Most needed items are cutting mats, rotary cutters and blades, straight pins with large colored heads, large-eyed sharp needles for tying quilts with yarn, and small scissors. Also needed are cotton fabrics, sheets (new or used) for quilt backs, and 60" wide light-weight fleece or standard quilt batting for warmth.

    Quilt-a-thon is an annual event held the first Tuesday in October each year to support Lutheran World Relief in their mission to bring comfort and warmth to people in countries around the world that have been ravaged by wars and natural disasters. What better way to help others while helping yourself.
