How Can I Help?
“Share with the Lord’s people who are in need.” (Romans 12:13) The Lord’s Quilters is a compassion ministry, and there are ways to be involved in this ministry even if you are not a quilter.
I have material
If the phrase, “She who dies with the most fabric wins,” applies to you, take a look at your stash and see if you can part with some of your material. It does not have to be a “typical” quilting material or motif. We use all kinds of designs and textures, and always need backing material.
We also need quilting thread, batting, cutting mats, rulers, rotary blades 45m or 60m, quilters’ pins, super-large quilters’ safety pins, clips and washable marking pens or pencils.
I have time
We need quilters! The requests for our quilts are so great that we can barely keep up. If you are a seasoned quilter, or are just starting out, we’d be delighted to have you join our ministry. Also, if you are interested in learning to quilt, we’d be happy to teach you!
We also need volunteers to help with packing and shipping the quilts, and managing the details of making sure we have the right supplies so our quilts arrive safe and sound. Volunteers will also help catalog material and quilting supplies (e.g., thread, batting, etc.) so we know what we have in inventory and what we need to procure.
I have supplies
It takes a lot of resources to keep our quilting ministry going. In addition to quilting material and supplies, we need sturdy boxes, packaging material (e.g., tissue paper, packing peanuts, bubble wrap, etc.), shipping tape, shipping labels and Sharpies. If you have these types of supplies and can spare them, please consider donating them to our cause.
Basic office supplies are also helpful. Pads of paper, envelopes, pens, pencils, paper clips, sticky notes and staples will be greatly appreciated.
“The generous will themselves be blessed.” (Proverbs 22:9)
If you are unable to donate material, time or supplies, you can participate in our healing and prayer ministry by sending a monetary donation to help purchase quilting material and supplies, and to pay for postage to mail the quilts. We are an all-volunteer non-profit organization, and all monetary donations are tax deductible.
We do NOT charge for healing quilts, however, we do accept donations to offset the costs of time, materials and postage.
Thank you for supporting The Lord's Quilters
