On August 25, with the help of Bella Mori (Sendai Izumi EFC) and short term missionary Meli from Hong Kong, Ann conducted a hand quilting class at the Tagajo city temporary housing unit, just east of Sendai. It was advertised as a “Quilting Class for Beautiful Ladies.” Thirteen women (and one elderly gentleman!) enjoyed hand quilting. Most were able to finish the project in the two hour time period and Ann gave each lady a second set of fabric (plus necessary scissors, thread, needles, etc.) to complete another hand quilting project in their spare time.

They were happy to be sewing and would like us to come again.  So we were invited back for another session in Oct.

We will be giving the temporary housing center a photo album of the Aug 25 quilting session.
