Quilters' Guild

          Since 1990 the Lamb of God quilters have been meeting to put together quilts for Lutheran World Relief (LWR). The quilts measure 60 inches by 80 inches with a backing, batting and a quilt top consisting of various shapes sewn together. The cotton fabrics used for the quilt tops and sheets for backing are generously donated by members and friends of Lamb of God along with the sewing machine thread and crochet thread for tying. The only item we purchase is the batting; monies are provided by generous donations and memorial gifts.
          On a Sunday in February each year the quilts are placed on the church pews to receive a blessing before they are packed and taken to Shepherd of the Hills in Clermont, Florida for pick-up and delivery to the LWR distribution center in New Windsor, Maryland. We are delighted to say that since we began quilting 4,267 quilts have gone to LWR.
          LWR instituted bar codes in 2013 to enable quilting groups to track where their quilts are sent.  Lamb of God began the bar coding process in 2015. Since then our quilts have gone to the following countries: Peru, Country of Georgia (located between Western Asia and Eastern Europe), Djibouti, Republic of Mali, Republic of Angola, Burkina Faso, Republic of Zambia, Bosnia, plus the United Nations Humanitarian Response Depot (UNHRD) Dubai established in the region to more quickly fulfill the needs of the surrounding area. These quilts provide comfort to those with the greatest need.
We are looking for volunteers, donations of sheets of any size to use for quilt backings and cotton fabric for the quilt tops. We could use help with cutting donated fabric into quilt squares, this can be done at home.
          Quilters meet the first Wednesday and third Thursday of each month throughout the year. We offer OJT (on-the-job training). Come see what we are about and join us. If you have any questions or need more information please call the church office. We always say, "If you can tie a knot, you can quilt."
