Outreach

Threads of Connection logo

Threads of Connection, a quilting/sewing ministry, provides an opportunity for women participating in SISTER Connection to give back to their community and to other women who are, or have been, incarcerated. We are in the final stages of preparation and will be offering basic sewing instruction, cutting and assembling of quilted tote bags and lap quilts.

Future projects include children’s quilts for a child who has a mom in prison and basic sewing instructions for mending/altering a participant’s own clothing. We also have women from several churches who have expressed an interest in assisting the women from SISTER Connection with cutting, sewing and construction of tote bags and quilts.

Threads of Connection will bring opportunities for giving and receiving by all who participate. Enfolded within each stitch will be a story and the connection of women from all backgrounds reaching out to one another.

“He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings
you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your
shield and rampart.” (Psalm 91:4)
