Where Friends, Faith, and the Future Meet
SEWMUCHNEED Sewing Group
SEWMUCHNEED spent several months making pillow cases for those in need. Over 130 pillow cases were given away in December to Grace Place, Operation HELP, Turningpoint, We Do Feet and Exodus House.
"DIAPERS FOR HAITI" plus layette gowns, baby sweaters and blankets have been the current project of the SEWMUCHNEED sewing group. We have had many new faces join us as we make these items for those in Haiti. To date we have made over 2,400 diapers. The following pictures show the ladies as they cut or sew these very "special" items for the children of Haiti. A shipment was delivered to Midwest Mission Distribution Center at the end of February with another shipment scheduled for mid October. Thanks to all who have helped.

It is contagious ... the "Diapers for Haiti" project is expanding in the area. Following presentations at their churches, members of Parkview UMC (left) of Turtle Lake, WI. as well as members of Roberts Congregational UCC Church (right) are now sewing diapers and layettes for Haiti. It is exciting to see the enthusiasm.
CHRISTMAS PROJECT ...
Members of SEWMUCHNEED spent several months making "Priscilla's" mittens, plus hats and scarves for the Christmas Day Dinner. Other projects include "Marilyn's" diapers, layettes, baby blankets and quilts for Midwest Distribution Center in Springfield, Illinois.
Priscilla Peterson is giving a special hint on making her special mittens during one of our sewing get togethers on the first Tuesday of each month at 9 a.m.
Just a few of the mittens that have been made to be donated to the Christmas Day dinner give away.
