t-shirt quilts and service stitches

*Sister's mark your calendars*  
Thursday, June 21st, 7:00 p.m. in the cultural hall.  
We will be learning how to assemble all our favorite t-shirts into a quilt to enjoy for years.  If you aren't interested in making a t-shirt quilt, you can still come for our service project:  We will be sewing bereavement diapers in support of families who have suffered the loss of a preemie or micropreemie through stillbirth or NICU.  We will donate the diapers to Kennestone Hospital.  Best of all, the YW will be joining in!  Hope to see you there!

What you will need to make a T-shirt quilt:

  • T-shirts of the same general size, cleaned (do not use fabric softener).
  • $ to purchase stabilizer from Cassandra Hopwood at the class.  We will iron this on the back of the t-shirts.
  • 3 yards of fabric that coordinates with your t-shirts.  (if it is a dark color, please wash and iron before class.  Colors that compliment shirts well are navy, black, dark green, and purple).
  • Scissors, and basic sewing supplies if you have them.

You will not need backing or batting in class because you won’t get quite that far.

Please call/e-mail Brenna Williams ( or Diane Brooks ( if you are planning to attend so we can get a count for better planning.

Also, if you are planning to attend, please let us know if you can bring a sewing machine, and rotary cutter/cutting board, iron/ironing board.
