St. Rita Quilters

St. Rita’s Sewing Circle began about 1918 and is the oldest of St. Peters sewing groups. At first, the ladies of St. Rita’s did embroidery and other sewing work in addition to quilting, but now almost all of their work is quilting. At present, there are about a dozen members of the group. They meet starting about 7:00 a.m. on Thursdays (in the beautiful new Quilt/Scout Room beneath Selinger Centre). All the members may not be there the whole time, but attend as they have time depending on their other activities, until mid-afternoon. If you would like more information on this group, please call Marcia Schweiss at 573-896-4402.
