Sew Much Fun

2024 Easter Sunday 126 quilts on display

These quilts made with love and care are distributed to various groups in the community.

Hospice of Yuma: “They bring comfort to our patients. They so appreciate that someone who doesn’t know them cares enough to make these quilts out of love to help them through a difficult experience.”

Cancer Resource Center: “The patients love the quilts. They take them while getting chemotherapy or radiation. Treatment can last several hours and the patients get really cold. The lap quilts are the perfect size to put over their laps. And when they go home to rest, they have their quilt.”

New Life Pregnancy Center: “When they come in and ask for blankets, it means so much when they’re homemade instead of manufactured.”

Sew Much Fun, a ministry of Faith Lutheran Church, has been meeting since 1971, making quilts for those in need of warmth, comfort, and love.

They enjoy the camaraderie of plying their needles while in the company of others who quickly become friends. The end result of creating colorful and warm quilts is to bring comfort to cancer patients, the homeless, and newborns.

Last year they donated 171 quilts along with homemade baby caps and other items. Recipients include clients of Crossroads Mission, Amberly’s Place, Cancer Resource Center, WIC, New Life Pregnancy Center, Hospice of Yuma, and Women in Crisis.

“I enjoy seeing the fabric put together to make the pretty quilts,” said one participant. “There are some very creative people putting the pieces together.”

“We have a good time,” agreed a winter visitor who has been coming for several years. “We tell stories and laugh over refreshements. It’s something to look forward to every week. It makes me feel like I belong here.”

The group meets at 9 a.m. Wednesdays in the Fellowship Hall at Faith Lutheran Church, 2215 S. 8th Ave. All are welcome, no matter their sewing skill level, church members and non-members alike. For more information call Jan Hawkins at 928-297-2154 or the church office at 928-783-7429.
