Lutheran World Relief Quilts

Imagine the comfort and care you feel when you snuggle under a comforter or wear a piece of clothing made or worn by a loved one. That’s the feeling your share through an LWR Mission Quilt. Useful for shielding against the cold and rain, and for warm bedding, quilts can also be purposed as simple tents, floor coverings, or a wrap to hold a baby on a mother’s back. In a simple combination of fabric and thread, you reach out to people in their time of greatest need with a strong message of hope – you are not alone.

Our activities will include quilts, fabric kits and fleece blankets. Quilts are made by cutting material into squares, ironing and machine sewing the quilts. Fabric kits are mainly made by cutting fabric into prescribed lengths, adding thread and rolling into a bundle. Fleece blankets are made with two pieces of fleece, then cutting the edges and tying them.

 

We will gather at 9 AM on the second and fourth Fridays in the Anchor House.

 

If you’re unable to join us, help us at home! Easy to follow instructions are available and we will provide the materials.
