Quilting Ladies get "Loads" of Material
On Saturday November 4th, a truck arrived full of cloth material to be used for the quilting ministry of Elk Horn Lutheran Church. Some hefty church men helped the quilting ladies move the material into the church. The cloth came from two women - Norma Perry and Jennifer Allred - who have businesses in the Kansas area that work with major decorating designers. Those designers are constatnly giving them left over material, so they deliver it to churches up in the elk Horn area.
Norma Perry got to know Mary Pepitone, who is the daughter of JoAnn Greving. They along with Jennifer Allred who owns Allred-Y-Made have been delivering material here for the last 4 years. After the material arrives it is then cut and sewn together into quilts that are used as a ministry throughout the world. The Elk Horn Quilting ladies make in excess of 250 quilts per year. Last year 40 of them went to the Open Door Mission. Some went to Camp Carol Joy Holling in Ashland, Nebraska. Ten were made and given to the church's graduating seniors, but the majority of them go all over the world for Lutheran World Relief.
The quilting ladies meet every Monday at one o'clock, and are in need of new members. If you are interested in more information, call Bev Heartranft in Elk Horn.
