Happy New Year dear friends!

Well! We made it through 2020. Whew! We’re glad that’s over, because it was like sitting through a horror movie, except we couldn’t get up and leave.

That being said, Sew for HOPE (S4H) is still going strong, which makes me so proud. We’re going on 13 years of philanthropic sewing for those who have fallen on hard times. We’d like to thank Mission Quilters at Epiphany Lutheran Church for continuing to donate their cushy handmade quilts to S4H. The last batch was given to Sleep in Heavenly Peace (SHP). Also, thank you to St. Stephen Lutheran Church for continuing to give us a home. We are not holding meetings there, but we are using the space allotted us as a drop off/pick up location for our group. And of course we’re still storing our fabric, supplies and equipment there.

Thanks to all our ladies who are sewing at home, we’re managing to get a lot accomplished. We appreciate our friends who have long-arm sewing machines because they make our lives so much easier: to name a few, Julie Frederickson, Christy Gregg, Suzy Smith, and Marianne Clower, who owns The Quilt Peddler. They all do beautiful quilting.

Thanks for all you do,

Cynthia Seyler, Founder
Sew for Hope
