Sisters in Service is a group of volunteers who meet each Wednesday in the church's Overflow Room to assemble quilts for Lutheran World Relief. This year the group made 156 quilts. The need is great — Lutheran World Relief has set a goal of receiving 500,000 quilts this year for distribution to refugees and those affected by natural disasters.
No special skills are needed to volunteer with the Sisters in Service. The group simply puts together a quilt 'sandwich' (top, middle and back), then pins the edges together. The quilts are then knotted to keep the layers in place and taken home by sewing volunteers who finish the edges.
Sisters in Service begins work at about 9:00 a.m. on Wednesdays and wraps up around noon. Volunteers can bring lunch and enjoy a time of fellowship after quilting for the day is finished.
