Quilting Ministry

Kim Bucklin

The Hickory Grove Quilting Ministry was established in June of 2011 when a few quilters recognized the need to have a place to meet and share in time and talents.  Our quilters are as diverse as the fabrics we quilt together, coming together to share the creativity of quilting and love of sharing talents for worthy causes.

Over the years the HGQM has made and donated Quilts for a Cause to a variety of organizations throughout the country.  Including quilts for camps who specialize in the treatment of chronically ill and terminally ill children, home for single moms, children’s hospitals, burn center hospital, women with cancer, children in crisis, and quilts for our fabulous veterans. 

The quilts themselves are a reflection of the caring and giving hands that make them. A variety of themes are used, some have patriotic themes, some are hobby and fun related, while not all are perfect, as none of us are, they are all still beautiful and unique as we all are.

A Designated Funds Account is set up through Hickory Grove United Methodist Church for the HG Quilting Ministry, funds contributed to this account are used to reimburse quilters for the cost of supplies such as fabric and batting used for our Quilts for A Cause. Thank you to all who have contributed to the account.

HGQM meet every Tuesday evening from 5:30pm until around 8:30pm in the Agape Room of the Family Life Center of Hickory Grove United Methodist Church. They will not meet after Tuesday, December 8th for the remainder of 2020. We also have scheduled quiltshops once a month on Saturdays.

The mission of the Quilting Ministry is: A place for quilters to gather and offer time and talents for church, charity, and personal projects.

Quilter's Prayer:  Dear Heavenly Father, may the work of our hands be pleasing to your site and used to show others warmth of the body as well as warmth of the Spirit. Amen.
