Quilts for Missions


In 2006, LWMS received a request from a women's quilting group in Minnesota; the group wanted a list of missions that need quilts. At that time we had no requests for quilts, but a letter was sent to world missions asking for if any quilts were needed. We received an enthusiastic response from the missionaries!


Directions for Sending Quilts

To send quilts to WELS missions, please follow these procedures:

  1. Pick a mission from the list below and follow any directions the missionaries have noted. Please note: you do not need to make all the quilts needed; leave a few for other women to make!
  2. Contact Bambi Tuttle, our quilt coordinator, and tell her which mission you are making quilts for, and how many you plan to make.
  3. Design & make your quilts; have fun!
  4. Send your quilts to the mission you picked. Unfortunately, LWMS does not have funds to ship the quilts to the missions at this time.
  5. Contact Bambi Tuttle for shipping information (quilts@lwms.org).

Greeting from APACHELAND!

"We definitely want to be included on your list of missions (Grace Lutheran Church – San Carlos, and Peridot Lutheran Church – Peridot) needing quilts."
NEEDS: LAP SIZE (45” x 60”) for new children that join our Sunday Schools. LAP SIZE (45” x 60”) for shut-ins and those hospitalized for long term care. LAP SIZE (45’ x 60”) for members or visitors in wheel chairs that attend church services, during the cold winter and early spring months. BABY SIZE (45” x 45”) for little ones at baptism, or any baby in need. "Any amount or size quilts we receive would be used to spread the love of Jesus among the Apache.
