Isabel's Quilting Ministry
Who We Are
Isabel's Quilting Group at Advent works separately and together in faith, fun, and fellowship to create over quilts to send to and our neighbors around the world, who receive quilts in their greatest times of need through Lutheran World Relief.
LWR Mission Quilts create a tangible, lasting bond between the people who lovingly assemble them and with others from around the world.
LWR distributed its first quilts in 1945 to families in war-torn Europe following the Second World War. Within a decade, the ministry was reaching around the globe to villages far removed from the world’s attention. Today, an average of 300,000 quilts are lovingly given worldwide each year.
LWR Mission Quilts are highly regarded throughout the world because of their quality and consistency. Through the careful adherence to LWR's quilt-making guidelines each quilt is useful, consistent and fair.
Over the years Advent has made and donated 214 quilts to LWR which have been sent to the countries of Georgia (2017), Iraq and Ethiopia (2018), Armenia (2019), and Lebanon (2020).
Where will they go this year? We don't yet know. But they will be here at Advent and as a part of our worship service every second Sunday in October as we gather to ask God to bless these gifts to be a blessing to others.
