What’s the problem? Our Stash is overflowing, and we need to keep up with the demand for prayer quilts. Through many generous donations of fabric, we have
accumulated an amazing amount of fabric. We also have quilt tops that are ready to be layered and to have ties applied. The demand for Prayer Quilts has been fairly high recently, and our supply of quilts that are ready to be filled with prayers is lower than we like it to be.



What if I have already started a prayer quilt at an earlier retreat? Do I have to start a new one?
No, this would be an excellent time to finish the prayer quilt you have started.

What do I need to do before the retreat?
Before the retreat please decide on a pattern for a fairly easy, scrappy quilt. Come and select your fabric from our stash. You can attend one of our regular Prayers & Squares meetings on Thursday, September 20, or Saturday, October 6. We meet in Linder Hall 4 from 9 AM to noon. And if you have not already selected a pattern, you can find one also. If you can’t possibly come on either of those dates, just register, and there will be contact information in your confirmation letter about
meeting a Prayers & Squares member at a mutually convenient time. Please cut your fabric before the retreat so that the full time can be spent sewing.

Will there be someone to help me with constructing my quilt if I need it?
Yes, there will be Prayers & Squares members who will be happy to help you. This retreat is not for beginners, but the nice part of sewing with others is that there is someone to help if you need them.

What will we be doing at the retreat besides sewing?
Prayers & Squares retreats are always full of friendship and fellowship, and there are other tasks that are very helpful. There will be tables set up for layering quilts and putting in the ties. This requires no sewing experience and is a good time to get acquainted with other participants. It is always nice to have someone who will iron for those who are sewing so that they don’t have to
stop so often.

What if I want to sew, but I need to borrow a sewing machine?
A few of our members have agreed to provide machines to lend. Let us know when you register.We have space and electricity for 20 sewing machines. 

What if I can’t afford to spend that money right now?
We have a limited number of scholarships available.
