St. Ambrose Parish Blue Cross Mission Ladies meet monthly to sew quilts of various sizes according to the needs of the receivers. Quilts are given to Iowa City Vets Hospital, local nursing homes, homeless shelters and especially to mothers-to-be and small children. A pot luck lunch is served at noon, followed by business meeting.
Working for the needy of the area is very rewarding and strong friendships are formed. All ladies of the parish may join, even non-sewers.
Blue Cross Mission Ladies meet on Tuesday of each month, September through June (depending upon the the temperature), from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to work on quilts and have their monthly meeting. Women of our parish please consider to join them and meet other women of our parish. Bring a dish for potluck luncheon. Any questions, please call the Parish Office at 309-787-4593.
