Students donate stitches of warmth

What some consider a lost art is being rekindled with students at Whitewater Middle.

Seventh grade students in Laurel Hinze’s Family and Consumer Science connection class are learning the skill of hand quilting.

This semester the students have been working on a community project, the completion of three quilts that will be donated to Promise Place in Fayetteville, a shelter for victims of domestic violence and their children.

“The students demonstrated great skill and cooperative teamwork in sewing the three quilts. What an opportunity for our students to share their skills with our community,” said Hinze.

The students have received a special invitation from the Quilters Guild of the Southern Crescent to attend the group’s monthly meeting in March to present the quilts and meet the members.

The guild will donate the quilts to Promise Place on behalf of the students. The presentation will take place March 25 at the Fayette Presbyterian Church beginning at 7 p.m.

This is not the first community service project completed by students in Hinze’s connection class.

In December, students made a quilt that was donated to the Atlanta Homeless Mission.
