SEWING MINISTRY

Come join us and make a difference in the community!   We make a variety of items: fleece hats/mittens, pediatric pillows, clothing protectors, baby blankets/burp cloths, bandana bibs, Christmas stockings for the troops, quilts, altar linens, walkers bags, and clothing protectors for the elderly, plus much more!  No experience is necessary…we need help pressing, cutting, and pinning.  We can also teach or refresh sewing skills for those who are interested.  We have sewing machines and a variety of donated fabrics.

If you would like to learn more about this ministry, please email or call St. Rita church office (parishoffice@stritarockford.org/815-398-0853).

 

MEETINGS AT WAHL HALL (Downstairs Meeting Rm), SECOND WEDNESDAY FROM 9 AM TO NOON

IF YOU LOVE TO SEW, JOIN OUR GROUP TO USE YOUR TALENT TO HELP OUR COMMUNITY!

Sewing into Summer:

The pictures to the left show completed projects from April and May!  Nice work by all our sewers to make pillows, clothing protectors, tote bags, surgical caps, pillowcases, and much more!  We also wanted to give a special thank-you to two members that help our ministry complete our mission: Dorothy and Pam!  Dorothy steadfastly takes detailed minutes at our meetings to keep everyone informed of our activities.  Her timely and accurate notes are pivotal to helping our group stay connected and organized!  Pam, besides being the founder of our organization, has taken on the responsibility of evaluating our sewing machines and arranging servicing as needed. She saw a need and took the initiative to make sure our machines are ready for our use!  Thank-you both for your dedication!!

Please note: Our meetings starting in April will now be in the lower meeting room at Wahl Hall.  In addition to stairs, there is also an elevator available.
