Join us for this all-day Mystery Quilt workshop led by Pam Kay! What is a Mystery Quilt you ask? It is a great stress-free activity that involves one person providing fabric requirements and step by step procedures and demonstrations on how to make units for a quilt that will eventually become the quilt top—Stress-free because all you have to do is choose your fabric and enjoy the process. For an additional charge, the Catholic Daughters will provide meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) for this all-day event.

Clara Gibson, an extraordinary quilter, will provide a noon trunk show that is certain to inspire you!

The Catholic Daughters of the Americas have long been supporters of Project Handclasp, the beneficiary for this event. Our goal is to purchase a treadle sewing machine for families in countries of great need. A treadle sewing machine allows families, especially women, to make clothes and household items for their own families and to sell to others as a source of income. It is a great source of independence. Why a treadle sewing machine? Many countries have limited resources—one being electrical power. A treadle sewing machine does not require any electricity to function as it is “powered by humans.”

Do you have any extra sewing notions, patterns and fabrics? We will accept your items to donate to Project Handclasp. In addition to the highly-desired treadle machines, needles, thread, fabrics, scissors, zippers, new/used patterns, etc. are greatly needed.

The Catholic Daughters of the Americas is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Your in-kind donations and your $60 workshop fee are tax-deductible within the full-extent of the law.
