The 17 students in the Prairie High sewing classes are in full swing this fall.  We’d like to shout out a BIG THANK YOU to our community for all your generosity.  Over the summer we received several anonymous material donations and an extra special donation of 2 new sewing machines and children’s books from Greg and Colleen Sonnen. The books will be given to new moms at St. Mary’s Hospital along with the baby receiving blankets sewn by the students.  The classes are now focused on sewing scrap quilts that will be displayed at the Winter concert in December.  Come check out their creations and enjoy some beautiful music.
