Quilting

Winter Quilting Marathon a Success!

Area quilters were invited to the Manna House of Prayer for an extra-extended weekend. The event was hosted by Sister Betty Suther. Quilters were welcomed to bring their UFO’s (Unfinished Objects). They were treated to field trips to nearby quilt stores, great food and snacks and comfortable accommodations at Manna House.
Our next quilting retreat begins on February 2nd. See below for more information.
