QUILTING MINISTRIES

During this pandemic time, several of the quilters have also been very actively sewing masks for friends and family as well as keeping a supply available at the church for TLC members and the community.  

We have also made several hundred masks for T.A.C.O., which has an ongoing need, as well as for ElderHelp.

PRAYERS & SQUARES

Quilters in the congregation gather to make prayer quilts and quilts for high school seniors, members of the military and veterans. 


We currently meet on Zoom, the first and third Saturday of each month. During this time we share the projects we've been working on at home since we are unable to gather in person. We continue in our motto "It's not about the quilt, it is all about the prayer."


Lutheran World Relief

Each year we normally complete 100-120 quilts for LWR in time for the Ingathering in October.  I cut the Donated material is cut into 11” squares and kits of 48 squares are distributed to our quilters who assemble the tops at home.  The quilts are large—60” x 80” per LWR guidelines.  Typically we then gather as a group to layer and tie the quilts.  

During this pandemic time, however, we continue to sew tops at home and accept donated fabric in anticipation of the time we can meet in person to complete them.    Since this is very simple sewing—just straight seams and the pieces are already cut—we are always looking for people who want to sew at home.

Project Linus

Several of the quilters make quilts for Project Linus, a National organization that gives quilts to children ages 0-18 who are hospitalized or in shelters.
