Sewing Sisters Quilting

Christmas is just seven weeks away, but the ladies of the Sewing Sisters Quilting group are well prepared to support a locally-organized charity that helps impoverished people overseas. The group’s 51 members have knitted some 110 girls dresses for the annual Christmas Shoebox Campaign.
