Peace Quilters make quilts for the homeless and needy people locally and worldwide.
Full size quilts are donated to local homeless shelters and are sent to areas in need, nationally and overseas, by Lutheran World Relief. Cot size quilts are donated to The ACCA Children’s Center in Annandale.
This past year we delivered 109 quilts to the warehouse of the Church of the Brethren in New Windsor, MD. These quilts are then shipped all over the world to people who need a warm blanket. Several quilts were also given to Alternative House, a shelter for battered women.
Donations of cotton fabric, flat sheets and 3-ply yarn are welcomed and appreciated.
We work as an assembly line creating these beautiful quilts. Several people cut donated fabric into squares. A second group fashions the squares into a quilt. The squares are then sewn together and a backing and batting are layered together. Another group sew the edges and lastly the layers of the quilts are tied together. Come join us! – no experience is necessary, just a desire to make something that can help others.
