The Advent Quilters meet every Wednesday. We invite you to come sit, sew and fellowship with us.
We welcome anyone 20 years of age up to 100. We are open to members of Advent Lutheran Church and non-members. There are many skills needed in the construction of a quilt and many opportunities to contribute for veterans and those who want to learn. So, stop by and meet our wonderful group of dynamic women as we welcome your gift for this mission.
“Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and prosper for us the
