Sewing machines whir, scissors click, irons hiss and the conversation is snappy.
On Mondays, in the basement of Concordia Lutheran Church, the Pack Rats are in full production mode. They’re a group of retired women who come together each week for what they call “fun.” On this particular day, Kay Unhjem is measuring fabric for baby quilts.
“I cut, I put in filler,” she says.
Marcia Lallum and Helen Lindsey are handling the sewing on their own machines that just happened to show up in the church basement.
