The Catawba Angels gather to create comfort items for Catawba County residents. Pictured are Pat deBlois (seated at sewing machine) and left to right Juanita Sigmon, Joan Waryold, Rachel Sigman, and Faye Arrowood.

The Catawba Angels welcome participants the fourth Friday of each month between 10am and 3pm to make quilts and afghans which will be given to children who have experienced trauma. Persons of all skill levels are invited to get involved by sewing, knitting, crocheting or assisting with finishing details.

People in the community can help the Catawba Angels in various ways. The group needs donations of yarn, fabric and batting and will welcome any new members who want to make items to be donated.

The group meets at the Catawba County Agricultural Resources Center, 1175 S. Brady Avenue, Newton. Volunteers are always welcome and don’t need to stay the whole time. They can participate according to their schedules.
