There are many ways to use your God-given time, talents & treasures here at Holy Cross! One way is joining our Lutheran World Relief (LWR) Quilters!
The LWR Quilters assemble quilts to be distributed by Lutheran World Relief to refugees and other people in need around the world.
These quilts may become a shelter from the sun or protections from the cold. Often times they are used as a bed, a room divider, a backpack to carry belongings, or even a burial shroud.
Each quilt is one of a kind made from donations of old sheets, fabric samples and remnants or pieces of new fabric. Some workers cut or sew the blocks, others pin or tile quilt tops to bottoms for finishing. Some ladies who are unable to come to the workshops sew the quilt tops at home.
No sewing experience is necessary and everyone is welcome to come and assist where they wish while enjoying Christian fellowship.
The quilters meet in the Fellowship Hall every 2nd & 4th Monday of the month from 9:30am – 1:00pm.
The quilters welcome any and all donations of fabric (old sheets, pillowcases, tablecloths, napkins, material scraps, etc.) - even old curtains. They are also always in need of sewing thread - any color but especially white. You may drop your donations off in the box located in the storage room across from the kitchen.
