Save the date: Make plans to join MCC for The Great Winter Warm-up! Mennonite Central Committee will kick off our centennial celebration year by hosting a comforter knotting event in Kidron, Ohio, on January 17-18, 2020. People of all ages are invited to Salem Mennonite Church (3363 Zuercher Road in Kidron) as we join people across the U.S., Canada and Europe who will be knotting comforters at events during The Great Winter Warm-up. We are also in need of comforter tops and backs (size 60”x80”) for the event, so please consider making some and dropping them off at MCC Connections by December 4. For more information about the Kidron event visit Can’t make it to the Kidron event? Visit for information about hosting your own event or knotting a comforter in your home. For more information contact Sarah Geiser at 330-201-4515 or

Viv will be piecing 8 comfort tops for MCC.  (Squares provided by MCC Connections.)  If possible, MCC Connections would like us to provide backing fabric for these comforts.  Four yards of fabric are needed for one comfort.  Comfort backs can also be made using (2)- two yard pieces.   Check your stash of fabric to see if you have 2 or 4 yard pieces you can part with. Fabrics can be brought to the church and will be sent to MCC Connections with the completed tops.
