Mt. Pisgah's Quilters Group faithfully meet on the first and third Thursdays of each month from 9 am to noon. They make pieced quilts from donated cotton fabrics using 6, or 10-inch squares (sometimes larger) and/or 2, 3, and 4-inch strips. Our quilts are finished by tying or in-line machine stitching, the latter or edged with binding.
The larger quilts are delivered to the Orphan Grain Team, a Missouri Synod Lutheran charitable organization that serves U. S. citizens in need, disaster victims and those in need worldwide. The smaller quilts, "lap robes", are usually given to the Veterans Hospital in Asheville to distribute as needed to our veterans. We have also given lap robes to Hospice and several of our members.
Finished quilts are typically placed on display in the Fellowship Hall prior to receiving a blessing at a Sunday service and being sent out.
Some members of our group also sew dresses that are donated locally and to hour Haiti mission.
