Heritage Quilt Guilds donates backpacks to area parish CASA divisions

Two special guests and the introduction of two new members highlighted the Thursday meeting of the Jonesboro Heritage Quilt Guild. The always enjoyable session where the talented and creative members keep alive an age old tradition of quilt making and sewing met this past Wednesday at the Jonesboro-Hodge Methodist Church.

The meeting began with patrons enjoying the “Show and Tell” portion where members presented their latest creations. This was followed by McKenzie Turner, speaking to the group about CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) and being presented with over 100 handmade, quilted backpacks and bags to be given to the children of Bienville, Claiborne and Jackson Parish in the program. Before Turner left, First Baptist Church in Jonesboro Pastor, Brian McAllister, led the group in prayer over the bags. The session concluded with Crisa Slusher and Glenda Nelson, who had come as guests, presenting their creations and becoming members.
