The ladies of the Quilt Ministry and I have started a sewing ministry. It all came about when Connie became gravely ill a few years back.
It was a scary time first, because my dear friend was so sick, and secondly, I worried about the fact that our quilt ministry would suffer. We still had Barbara, my other precious friend and mentor, who along with Connie keeps us going in the right direction but I feared that Connie might not be well enough to continue on with the ministry. I have come to rely on the both of them as friends and mentors.
My thoughts turned to the fact that sewing is not widely practiced among the younger crowd which made me worry for the future of the quilt ministry. So after Connie recuperated, we sat down and hashed out some ideas for this new ministry. Our church trustees welcomed our proposal for a new ministry with open arms and dedicated a room specifically for us.
We’ve had fun decorating the room of which I will share more later (not finished yet) but I wanted to share the vintage spool wreath that Connie made for our door. Isn’t it awesome?
I love the green stripe bow that she used to finish it off.
I also love that she used a grapevine wreath to incorporate a natural element. Plus, she didn’t have to fill in every single space with spools to let that natural element peek through. Love it, Connie!
Now as you walk down the long hallway of Sunday School rooms, our door stands out. It is a lovely place full of vibrancy when filled with the hum of sewing machines and happy chatter.
I plan to show some of the projects we work on in the class. Maybe you can join in yourself if you see a project you like. If it is a project that I have not provided a tutorial for, leave a comment and I’ll see what I can do.
Thanks for dropping by today!
Giving all praise to God for this new ministry as a way to serve!
