Items needed for March Intensive
Do you have fleece, blankets, and/or flannel sheets (full size or larger) that you no longer need? The March Intensive that is working with the Lutheran Church to make quilts for disaster relief is in need of these items to use as filler for the quilts. We are also looking for lengths of new cotton fabric for use in backing.
You may drop items off at the high school or contact Jeanine King (firstname.lastname@example.org) to arrange for pick up.
