Quilting for Lutheran World Relief

Nancy Adams

Shepherd of the Hills has a group of people who turn fabric and stuffing into useful Lutheran World Relief (LWR) quilts. Recipients of the quilts might use it for warmth, as a covering (tent), as a table spread out on the ground, or as a suitcase to carry possessions. LWR quilt ministry is a long-standing mission responding to disasters around the U.S. and the world.

Our quilting group developed from the small group, Women’s Evening Bible Study which is not currently meeting. LWR is part of the ECLA of which SOTH is a member. Our group will be meeting in the Big Room at Shepherd of the Hills from noon to around 2:00. We will continue meeting usually on the first Sunday of the month. Refer to the calendar, email blasts, and the website for specific dates. All are welcome to stop by and see how the quilts are assembled. No sewing skills or prior experience is needed if you choose to participate.

Every fall, completed quilts are collected at designated places throughout the U.S., then trucked to LWR warehouses for storage until needed for a disaster response anywhere in the U.S. or in the world. See the Lutheran World Relief website, www.lwr.org for more information.
