Bethany Quilters Need Donations of Fabric and Sheets

Bethany Quilters made more than 300 quilts last year for Lutheran World Relief and local charities.  We are always in need of donations of fabric and sheets.  Good used sheets and blankets are  needed for backs and linings and larger pieces of fabric are needed to make the quilt tops. Donations can be marked for Bethany Quilters and left in the church office.
