Through a Thrivent Financial Action Team donation, volunteer Colleen Steckel was able to purchase materials for a number of wall quilts for the Rose Haven project. PRISC teamed up with the Pamlico River Quilters Guild (PRQG) to initiate a project to create quilted wall hangings for Rose Haven, which is planned to open in 2018 as a reintegration house for female Veterans.
The PRQG consists of over 80 [mostly] women throughout a 3 county area around Washington NC whose goal is to share their love of quilting with each other and the community. This Action Team purchased enough materials to provide at least 5 quilted wall hangings and/or lap quilts for the incoming Veterans. The wall hangings’ vibrant color and design are being chosen to create an inviting environment for those women Veterans who will soon be inhabiting this historic home.
This Action Team is still in progress, but will be completed before the opening of Rose Haven later this year. Three members of the Pamlico River Quilters Guild who are volunteering their time and talents to create these quilts are pictured here with David Steckel (PRISC Project Engineer); (left to right) Diane Gregg, Diane Adams, and Kathy Belski.
