When the earthquake and tsunami hit Japan, quilters wanted to help and comfort those affected. Pine Belt Quilters make children's quilts all year long, and we had some quilts ready and available, so we boxed up 25 quilts and sent them to Mission of Love, an organization partnering with equilter.com. Mission of Love has been involved in getting supplies where needed and had arrangements for an Air Force plane to transport the quilts.
Pine Belt Quilters meetings are at 9:30 AM the 3rd Wednesday of every month at University Baptist Church, 3200 W. Arlington Loop, Hattiesburg, MS. In addition, there are three activity group meetings per month.
