Conrad’s very own quilting retreat was a first annual event this past week. Organizers included Pam Steiner, Linda Van Tongeren, Helen Stordahl and Judy Ketterling.
These women are part of a quilting guild called the Montana Prairie Quilters that meets the second Saturday of every month at the Lutheran Church from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Anyone is welcome to join the guild and the cost is a mere $10 a year and $1 each time of attendance.
The Prairie Quilters contribute to our community by donating welcoming packages to new parents at PMC. These packages include a receiving blanket, a bib and a burp cloth.
