Threaders Ministry

As the quilting bees of 100-200 years ago in America were the time when women came together to socialize and bond, so the Bethel Threaders come together once a month – for five hours – to quilt, crochet, and knit. In like manner, we are also cultivating close friendships and bonding together in love with each other and with Israel as we make hats, scarves, afghans, slippers, children’s sweaters, pot holders, dishcloths, etc. for CFI. Our motto is: “Come when you can, leave when you must.” This is an active, vibrant group; these ladies all believe the words found in Colossians 2:2:

“That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love . . . ”

Colossians 2:2

We began in October 2008, just two days after Ray & Sharon Sanders visited and presented CFI’s ministry to the church. It is open to all ladies, whether they know how to knit or crochet or not. We have a set of knitting looms to teach beginners on – they build confidence with the loom, and then learn other skills from there. We begin each meeting with “show and tell” about what we’ve been doing the last month, exchange patterns and ideas, help each other with new stitches/problems, and have a great time fellowshipping and eating. We are taking to heart the verses in Proverbs 31. Verse 13 says:

“She seeketh wool and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. V. 20 – She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth for her hands to the needy. V. 27 she eateth not the bread of idleness.”

Proverbs 31. Verse 13
