  2. Articles & Resources : Mission Stitches’ January Sewing Days

    Mission Stitches is Westminster’s sewing guild that’s currently working on:

    • Assembling dresses for the Haiti Mission team to deliver on their trip this Spring, and
    • Constructing handsewn pillowcases for the pediatric units at both Duke and UNC hospitals.

    The dresses and pillowcases have been assembled into kits and are ready to be stitched together. Please join us and witness turning these kits into finished products! Drop by anytime on January 18-19, from 10:00am-4:00pm in Rooms 203 and 209. Bring your sewing machine or use one of ours. Sewing skills and experience aren’t necessary – our sewers will be happy to help and mentor you.
