Sisters Julie Dodds and Susan Busch were heartbroken when their little Methodist church, only a mile from the family farm where they grew up, was decommissioned. So Julie, an avid quilter, bought it and, with Susan's help, remodeled the church and parsonage to welcome crafters and other guests. They've held numerous quilting events and classes and hosted dozens of weekend groups of quilters, scrapbookers, and more. Here's their story.
