Our mission Sew Good Souls brings our hands and hearts together in Rhode Island, allowing us to reach people around the globe.
Yes, we were on hold during Covid 2020 so we did not meet in person but it did not stop people from making sun dresses and quilts. We have almost 100 dresses. Some will go with our youth group when their trip to Ghana resumes, and others will go to a new mission. We have collected 57 quilts made by: Julie Eberly, Linda Chafee, Yvette Drurey, Jane Larkin, Lois Gardner. Rita Gladych, Joyce Mace and Brenda Linton for Quilts Beyond Borders. Since we did not have a quilt show in 2020 we want to share with the congregation, quilts that would have been in our show and are now heading to our Quilts Beyond Borders Northeast Coordinator, Karen Matheson, for distribution. We hope you enjoy the slideshow:
In past years we have focused on several national and international projects:
We make sundresses that will be sent, through various mission projects to those in need. DAG is a program within Hope 4 Women International that has been serving women and girls at risk since 2008.
We make quilts for children in need, especially orphans living in under-served areas of the world where the warmth of a quilt is needed at night. More than 153 million children in the world today have lost one or both parents. QBB has delivered thousands of quilts around the world, and most recently our own Native American Indians have been receiving quilts for adults.
Whether you sew or not, we hope you can join us at one or more of our workshops. Many hands will be needed to get our mission moving.
