• National Quilting Day 2019

National Quilting Day falls on Saturday, March 16 this year, and we have a lot to celebrate!

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! So, on National Quilting Day, Lutheran World Relief wants to celebrate you! We want to lift up your ministries and show others the phenomenal work you do. 

There are many ways to join in the celebration of this ministry of blessings:
  • Share your stories, photos, and fun tips via social media that weekend, and tag Lutheran World Relief (@LuthWorldRelief on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram). You can also use the hashtag #NQD2018 to join in the wider conversation! 

  • Hop on to the LWR Quilters & Kit Makers Community Facebook group to watch live video feeds from the LWR NQD events happening across the country. 

  • If you aren’t close enough to join one of those events, we invite you to host your own! Download the planning guide below to help you organize a National Quilting Celebration in your community. 

  • Ask your congregational leaders to include a petition in the prayers of the church on March 17 lifting up quilters and those who receive quilts. 

  • Have a reception between or after Sunday services on March 17 to honor your quilters.
