Quilting Club

What We Offer

     “Years ago, as a little girl, I won the prize winning Quilt at a festival at my little country Catholic Church near Loogootee, IN.  I was always very proud of it.  Years later after I had learned to quilt, I had a great desire to start a quilting group at Holy Spirit Church.  Then, we could raffle off a quilt at our annual festival each year.  I remember how happy I was to win a quilt and wanted others to have that experience.  A parishioner, Virginia Godfrey, had won the first quilt that was made in the Block’s quilt contest.  I asked her if she would help me get it started.  She agreed and was a big help.  She stayed with me for a year.  By then, we had a nice group and have had a quilt for our festival every year since.  I’m not sure what year we got started, but I think it was 1979.  In 2003 or 2004, the leadership was turned over to the very capable hands of Ann Powers.” Marcella Smith

     Our prime objective is to make a quilt to be raffled at the festival.  We’re a very congenial group.  We have fun while creating beautiful heirlooms.  We are proud of the fact we contribute to the parish on a zero budget.  This year we made $2,735 on the quilt, all of which went to the parish.

     We meet each Monday from 1-3 p.m. downstairs in the Parish Center.  We welcome quilters or anyone who wants to learn to quilt or piece.
