Do you see swatches of fabric and begin visualizing the quilt they could make? Join the sew day quilting group! We make quilts for Lutheran World Relief, Normandale House, the Elliot Duplexes, CES, and other places of great need. YOU can cut, design, sew (with donated fabric), and quilt with us! We also have fabric packs for you to sew at home.
Meet, Sew, and Know us: 1st Tuesdays and 3rd Mondays of each month at 8:30–11:30 am in the Fellowship Hall.

Tied in Faith, Sent in Hope, and Wrapped in Love was the theme for the 2013 Lutheran World Relief Quilt Campaign. Fifty-five quilts were displayed on June 2 celebrating the time and work of Sew-Day Quilters.
- Lila Ryan, Mary Bang, and Jeanette Miller who tied or sewed from September to May.
- Wanda Bodin, JoAn Burkholder, Judy Darwin, Dorothy Lundquist, Barb Nitz, and Mary Vevle who gave time as life permitted.
- Ellen Kortz for her work in January.
- Ardis Lillehaug for sewing quilt kits and to Lavonne Garoutte for her many donations of estate sale washed sheets and blankets.
- Thank you too for the Normandale Women who in November tied 15 Christmas quilts—five each for SAYFSM, CES, and Normandale House.
Thank you for not only the making of mission quilts, but giving them away with faith & hope in a great and passionate joy. A warm quilt on a cold night is LOVE.
Thank you ladies for sharing this journey!.

Actually, the picture of the librarians has little to do with the knitted hats project, except seated in the center is Lois Anderson who knits a great many of the hats; we thought you would enjoy it.
The hats are knit through the year and then given out at Christmas to Augustana preschool kids, CES, VEAP, Cornerstone, Our Saviour’s Shelter, and Normandale House. Last year we gave out over 200 hats.
There still is time to knit more, so you can pick up patterns and donated yarn outside the library to use. If making a hat is too difficult, plain knit scarves are a welcome accessory.
Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength, and hope, that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking.
A chapter of Alcoholics Anonymous meets at Normandale Lutheran Church every Tuesday at 6:30 pm in Room 207.
