The Millerfield Ladies Quilting Circle
Click on headline for complete story with photo(s)
By Linda Roberts
I live in the Millerfield community of Adair County. I started a quilting project in 2009. I wanted to help the people in the community and the surrounding counties.
We started working on the project in the gym at the fellowship center, but that did not work out so good, so we moved to the loft above the gym, but that also created a problem, because some of the ladies weren't able to climb the stairs.
Louise Harden, Audra Pike, and Geraldine Baldwin were great helpers, but now, they too, are unable to climb the stairs. But they support us in other ways.
The first year we gave away 65 quilts for cancer benefits, house fires, baby quilts to Kosair Children's Hospital and for other needs and causes.
This last year, 2011, we made and gave away 113 quilts. These quilts went to Columbia, Green County, and Taylor County; Louisville; to Alabama for the tornado victims; Casey County to help house fire victims and cancer patients, Russell Springs, Jamestown, and to London, KY for a lady who lost her foot.
We donate quilts to anyone who has benefits, or wherever the need may be.
Most of the material we use is donated to us, but we've had to buy all the lining and the batting, so we have our own fund raisers to do that. And when we run out of money from the fund raisers, we take it out of our own pockets to keep the projects going.
So far the Lord has supplied our needs and we are going to do all we can to keep this mission going. Even though we are getting more and more requests for quilts each week, we have faith that the Lord will provide.
We will try our best to help anyone who calls us. Acts 20: 35 The Lord said, It is more blessed to give than to receive. - Linda Roberts
