Cat Sherrill met Sarah Lance in Kolkata, India in 2002 when Sari Bari was an idea in the making. In continuing to support Sari Bari over the years, this year, she decided to sign up for the quilt auction. Being aware of her sewing limitations, Cat solicited church friends “with a sewing machine” to help. Our quilters range from novices working on their first quilt to experienced seamstresses and quilters and all of us attend Christ the King Church in Cambridge, MA. We met several times to discuss a quilt pattern, cut fabric, piece the individual blocks and sew together finished blocks to make the final quilt. Once it was ready, quilting services and batting were donated by Laurena MacDermott at Laurena’s Longarm Quilting in Burlington. We had a wonderful time working on the project and are thrilled to be able to contribute our small part to help the women of Sari Bari raise funds for a building purchase.
