Piecemakers of the Cross
The PieceMakers formed in January 2001, and they have enjoyed prolific quilt making since the beginning. Their mission is to make quilts to welcome newborns into our church family, and the group continues to joyfully fulfill that mission. If you venture to Room 11 on any Wednesday evening, September through May, you will find a talkative group of all ages of experienced quilters and novices. Each person joins in the cutting, pinning, stitching, and overall great time! New members of all ages are always welcome, regardless of quilting ability.
At any given time, there are 5-10 quilts in varying stages of production, and enough work to keep 10-20 people busy each week. PieceMakers have sewn other projects, too. Easter banners for the sanctuary, appreciation quilts for retiring staff, 26 quilts for our partner church’s camp in Russia, tote bags for Bible school in Russia, a raffle quilt and other similar projects. On May 20, 2012 PieceMakers gave the 100th quilt to a new baby in the congregation. Children were asked to bring their own baby quilts to church to share. A warm and cuddly display radiated love out into the congregation. See you in September!!!

New Quilting Process for Piecemakers
In Fall 2022, with an inventory of 10+ completed quilts on hand, Piecemakers have decided to take a well-deserved break from meeting every week. The quilting will continue with a new format. ALL quilters in the PCOC congregation are invited to participate in a new process to ensure we continue to welcome newborns to our church family with handmade quilts. You will be invited to use the patterns, fabric, and even equipment available in Room 11.
If you are interested in joining this new Piecemakers process, please contact Linda Miller, Judy Arms, or Karen Morey for the details.
