The St. John Nepomucene Mission Club was founded in 1957. We are a group of volunteers that get together on Wednesdays from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. from September until the middle of May. We are located in the church basement (underneath the tabernacle). We are behind Door #7 across from the parish office and prayer garden. All of our sales help support select local, national and international nonprofit organizations!
The Dropbox is open for gently used donations such as clothing, linens, toys, small household items, shoes and boots.
It is very warm in the church basement so that is why we close during the summer months! We stay open on Wednesdays during the school year to complete quilt orders, sort clean gently used small items that have been donated in our Dropbox, create handmade items, take seams out of sheets, sell handcrafted items in our shop, and many more jobs.
Please join us anytime from 7:45 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. on Wednesdays during the school year. We will find something to keep you busy!! We have 6 sewing machines that are not used in the morning and 7 sewing machines sit idle in the afternoon! We have oodles of fabric to work with! We also have prayer time and refreshments at 9:30 a.m. and snacks again at 2:30 p.m. Join us – we would love to have your help and camaraderie!!!
We make items such as booties, mittens, aprons, kitchen towels, potholders, scrubbies and crocheted hangers. Our Mission Club has a beautiful rug loom, and we also make quilts ranging in size from baby or lap, up to king size.
We also have NEW handmade items that we have for sale – see below! The Mission Club also has baby crocheted/ knit layettes and microwave bowl holders .
We have several patchwork queen size tops that are ready to tie and hem that are for sale.
Please know that we can create additional queen size tops with a few months notice!
Some people prefer to make items in their own homes so we will gladly provide the yarn or fabric for you!
We collect new and gently used clothing, linens, toys and small household items. You may place them in our drop box outside of our Door #7. Our dropbox items are donated to Community Clothes Closet in Menasha and to St. Vincent de Paul – Green Bay East.
We take orders for quilts as well as tie-your-own-quilts. Remember we can make a quilt with your colors or sell you what we have on hand. We try to have our orders done for you in a timely fashion, but we do need approximately three to four weeks to complete a quilt order.
For any questions or to place an order for any of our products, please contact Lynn at (920) 427-1390.
