Zion Castroville Hand Quilters
Meet every Wednesday
from 1pm – 4pm
Quilting Mentors: Flo Balmer..and...Ruth Felty
Zion Quilters have been making hand-made Quilts since the turn of the century.
We will continue this tradition to honor our Quilters that have left this earth and mentored us throughout the decades.
Our "Quilt Angels" are now "Quilting in Heaven"
The Zion Quilters hand make two quilts each year to support fundraising during our Annual October Ham Dinner. All proceeds from the raffle sales are used for improvements toward the church and/or other needs within the community.
In 2018, the Quilters handmade a quilt and sold tickets to raffle. All proceeds went toward funding the Medina County Food Pantry Building Fund.
On December 2017, Zion church contributed a large monetary donation to the Medina County Food Pantry building project and in conjunction with this donation, the Zion Quilters' matched the contribution.
Smaller quilts are also handmade and donated to the Castroville Police Department throughout the year. Officers carry these quilts in their patrol cars and give out to children or any individual, as a source of comfort and warmth when they may be experiencing a stressful event. A short blessing is provided on a prayer card and accompanies each quilt. An average of 10-12 quilts are donated annually.
A quilt has also been donated annually to the Lutheran Sunset Ministries in Clifton, Texas, as a fund-raising source for their annual Quilt Auction in October.
The quilters welcome anyone who would like to join in our FELLOWSHIP TIME each Wednesday afternoon.
No previous experience required. We invite you to feel free to just "pop-in" on us and join-in!
