2014 "Half-Stitched" The Musical
Meet the Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club as their lives unfold around an Amish quilt. There's a young woman yearning for stability, a couple at odds in their marriage, a young widower seeking solace, a rough-and-tough biker doing community service, a preacher's wife escaping parish problems—and an Amish widow teaching her first quilting class.
The "Half-Stitched" musical is a delightful new journey of self-discovery, healing and renewed wholeness, pulled from Wanda Brunstetter's latest New York Times bestseller. You will find plenty to laugh at as these unlikely, beginning quilters are stitched together like scraps of fabric under the loving guidance of Emma Yoder. And the music? Oh, the music!
