The Zion Quilters are a very active ministry group whose purpose is to create quilts to wrap a hug around those who are sick, hurting, or needing encouragement. We make over 300 quilts a year and donate quilts locally, nationally, and internationally.
Locally we give to Love INC, United Way, Knute Nelson Hospice, West Central Communities Initiative (Alexandria Fire Victims), Life Connections and local fundraisers. We also donate quilts to Eagles Nest in Sauk Centre, Lutheran Island Camp in Henning for their annual quilt auction, and foster children in Pinal County, AZ.
Our international commitment is Lutheran World Relief.
We also have our quilts available to purchase and participate in the Crafters Tour each November. We continue to be blessed with many donations of fabric, sheets, blankets, yarn, etc. from people in the congregation and are grateful for several Thrivent Grants that have been able to help with our other needs.
We meet on Thursdays from 9 am to 2 pm in the Fireside Room and welcome new members at any time. We have a wonderful fellowship besides sewing quilts. If you would like to be a part of this ministry, please contact Linda Meichsner at 320-834-2941 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
