First UMC Pearland Quilt Show March 29

Date Posted: 3/25/2014

First UMC Pearland invites you to view the masterpieces created by the church Piecemakers quilting ministry. Each recently made quilt is a beautiful piece of art with a story. Several antique quilts will be shown that were discovered in a hope chest and are lined with original flour and sugar sacks from over 100 years ago.
“There is also a large quilting guild here in Pearland, and this is another way to reach out to the community and share with non-church members and other church communities about our ministry,” notes Communication Director Rebecca Llenos.
First UMC quilters make quilts to give to elderly members and have made some for graduating seniors, as well. Some quilters come and work on their personal quilts and come for the fellowship, camaraderie and creative help. Some come to learn and some come to teach. The quilt display will take place from 12-4 in the sanctuary at 2314 Grand North Boulevard in Pearland. More info: 281-485-1466 or
