Trinity Piecemakers

The Trinity Piecemakers quilt group was founded by Laura Martell when she attended Trinity United Methodist Church.  The group flourishes under the current excellent leadership of Donna Turner and Debbie Beattie; gaining new members; going on field trips to quilt shows and fabric stores and working on our own projects as well as charitable ones individually and as a group.  We have donated quilts to a flood victim, a shelter for battered women, wounded soldiers, a family member of a victim of 9/11, items for the church auction and donated pillows with handmade cases to a children’s home.  The group has just completed three quilts for the Quilts of Valor Foundation.  This Foundation distributes quilts to wounded soldiers.

Trinity Piecemakers meets the first Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m gathering at the church fellowship hall or someone’s home.  Meetings begin with show and tell and then a discussion of upcoming events, ideas for new charity projects, dates for classes, etc.  Next comes a demonstration of the current project – how to proceed with the next step, tips, what’s due next month.  Lastly, dessert, beverage and one-on-one conversations.

We usually hold a "lock-in" in our fellowship hall once or twice a year where we start sewing at 6 p.m. and try to sew through the night.  When we first started, many of us were able to make it.  As we have aged, 12:00 a.m. seems to be the breaking point.
