Ongoing:  Quilt Tops By Hand @ Union Lutheran Church

A Quilt top isn't really a quilt until it's sandwiched with batting and backing, quilted or tied, and bound around the edges.  This lost art is hard to come by, but at Union Lutheran Church they still quilt tops by hand, no machines
If you have a quilt top that needs to be finished, they can do it for you.  Call the church office at 610-767-6884 for more information and pricing  (Union Lutheran Church, 5500 Rte. 873, Schnecksville, PA 18078 ~ 610-767-6884).
