Purple Paisley Quilters
The Purple Paisley Quilters meet every Monday at 7:30 in the Third Floor Meeting Room/Library (or in the church basement Fellowship Hall in case of conflicts) to quilt, knit, do GOOD WORKS like wrapping presents for Christmas for Kids or sending out mailings for the South Sudan Medical Relief Clinic, and working on solving the world’s problems, large and small.
The group formed over 20 years ago. Several quilters got together to make a farewell quilt for Betta Beu, wife of our UU minister who was moving to a new position. We found that we enjoyed it so much that we have continued to meet ever since.
The men and women of the PPQ earn money during the year by making and hand quilting quilts on commission, making and raffling hand quilts and presenting a much-acclaimed Holiday Bazaar during the Christmas holidays. Then, in January we meet and divide up our earnings and give them all away to GOOD CAUSES around the world. The aforementioned Christmas for Kids and South Sudan
Medical Relief Clinic run by Dr. Jill Seaman are our largest beneficiaries, but we have many other causes we support as well.
We welcome all new babies into the congregation with a gift of a hand-made quilt. Best of all, we are a group that supports our community at all levels, caring for our PPQ members, our church and our greater Palouse Community.
We welcome anyone who is interested in joining us to come any Monday evening. No skills required, all materials supplied. Want to learn to hand quilt?
We almost always have a quilt on the frame for you to learn. Want to learn to knit? We have mentored many
new knitters. Want to learn more about the UU Church? PPQ are involved in every aspect of the church’s life, and are sometimes referred to as “The Power Center of the Church”. We’d love to have you come. For more information, contact the church secretary for contact information.
