Join us for the MCC Great Lakes Comforter Bash in Goshen! (*note the new location*)
We are gathering for the sixth annual Comforter Bash for MCC in the Goshen area. Last year more than 400 people knotted 497 comforters over a two-day period. Each year the number of comforters knotted has increased by 100.
A handmade comforter provides not only warmth but also a tangible message to people that their needs are not forgotten. The comforters will be distributed by MCC around the world.
All are invited to knot comforters for Mennonite Central Committee. Women, men, youth groups, friends and family are invited! Come and go as you are able.
Dates: Friday, November 13 (9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.)
Saturday, November 14 (9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.)
*Lunch available for a donation on both days.
*NEW LOCATION: Clinton Frame Church (63846 Co Rd 35, Goshen, IN 46528)
