Members of Murray First United Methodist Church in Murray, Kentucky are at it again this week for the 18th year in a row with their annual Sew-A-Thon. The goal of this annual event is to supply clothing and other necessities such as dresses, blankets, washcloths, and more for those in need locally and in third world countries.

All are welcome to attend and participate from newcomers to expert quilters. Tasks include fabric cutting, ironing, and sewing. Hundreds of clothes and supplies will be given to those without thanks to this generous church.
