Fabric Collection

We would like each church in District 7 to bring a 6x6 inch, 100% cotton piece of fabric to this event. We really want every church in the new District to be represented. Small floral or geometric prints or tone on tone coloring would work best for what we are doing; please no animal prints, patriotic, etc. Please place in an envelope with your church name so we know who has donated. Contact Wynne Hurlbut, Kalamazoo District Lay Leader, with any questions: wynne_hurlbut@frontier.com or (269)720-0741.
