The Cover Girl ministry at Resurrection is a group that gathers on the third Saturday morning each month with sewing machines and batting in their midst. They share, not only a passion for creating works of art out of scraps of cloth but also a love for those children and aging adults who will one day be wrapped in their quilts. Each quilt provides not only a reason to gather and work together but also a memory to cherish as well.
The group has been known to take trips "Around the World in 90 Days" by sewing Lutheran World Relief quilts which go out into all the world as they are needed.
During the 2nd QTR of the year, the group sews quilts for kids and babies - donating them to various groups in the area - Hope's Door (Women's Shelter), Children's Medical Clinic of Plano, City House, Hope's Cottage and My Friends House.
In the later part of the year they keep busy sewing items for sale and those dollars have been donated to various groups through the RLC Women's Group. Beneficiaries have been -The Nelson Center, Denton, TX, Lutheran Social Services, Collin County Interfaith, the Information & Referral group in Plano area, the Samaritan Inn and Plano Food Pantry. Lap robes have been sewn for residents of the Cottonwood Grove home in Plano and we donate a quilt to Clifton Lutheran Sunset Home for their October Auction.
