Quilting - see some of the beautiful work of the Messiah Lifeways quilters.

Messiah Lifeways at Messiah Village Offeres opportunities for anyone who quilts or would like to learn quilting techniques. There is also an active quilt guild at Messiah Village. Guild meetings are held on the fourth Thursday of each month at 1:00 pm. Our quilt studio contains two large quilting frames for those who like to hand quilt. Many quilters are also busy at home making quilts and other stitched items which they donate to the guild. All items donated to the guild are sold directly from the quilt studio and at several special sales throughout the year. Monies earned from the sale of quilts and other stitched items go to the Endowment Fund for Benevolent Care. Please contact the Volunteer Office or stop in at the quilt studio and talk to one of our quilters if you would like more information about the guild or quilting opportunities at Messiah Village.
