For nearly 70 years, compassionate people just like you have put their faith into action and made quilts for people in need around the world. And not just a few quilts–hundreds of thousands of quilts every year. These gifts of love make life brighter, softer, and a bit more comfortable for our neighbors around the world struggling with displacement, chronic poverty, illness, natural disaster and conflict. This amazing ministry is one that blesses the lives of quilters and those who receive quilts, and by inviting others to join us, in turn, blesses even more people through Lutheran World Relief!

Come celebrate with us on Saturday, March 16 as St. James hosts LWR’s regional National Quilting Day gathering. We welcome everyone knowledgeable or just plain curious,  with or without quilting or sewing experience. Meet us in the gathering area between 9 am to 12 noon and find out how this far reaching ministry works. Bring a friend!  Please RSVP to Claire Anderson by Wednesday, March 6 at or 717-779-6280 so that we can plan accordingly.  (If you have questions about Lutheran World Relief, please contact Melanie Gibbons, Quilt & Kit Ministry Manager at or 410-230-2737.)
