Tony’s Quilters

Tony’s Quilters sew quilts as gifts for infants baptized at St. Anthony’s Church and also for shut-ins from our parish who enjoy a lap quilt as a gesture that we continue to care for them. Anyone who possesses basic knowledge of sewing to cut, assemble, and make quilts is welcome to join. If you possess a sewing machine you should bring it along with basic sewing supplies. We meet on the second and fourth Monday of each month, excluding holidays, in the classroom at the hall of St. Anthony’s. For further information, please contact Dorothy Morrison at 309-634-0224.
