Pomaria Community Quilters

POMARIA COMMUNITY QUILTERS

Quilting Guild

Pomaria Community Quilters began in 2013 as a collaborative endeavor between Pomaria Lutheran Church and St. John’s Lutheran Church, Pomaria. Since its founding, it has become a community group that works from the Pomaria Lutheran Church parsonage.

The group makes utilitarian quilts for Lutheran World Relief. These quilts are created to LWR specifications and are delivered by LWR to hospitals, refugee settlements, and communities worldwide. Not only do LWR quilts provide warmth and comfort, they are also used as baby carriers, market displays, sunshades as well as to carry goods to market or personal belongings. They are made with love and send a message of hope. Quilts made in Pomaria have been distributed in India, Tanzania, Mali, Rwanda, Ukraine, and Lebanon.
