Living Threads Ministry

This local ministry's mission is to provide memory quilts for grieving families, purposeful community for volunteers and meet the spiritual and physical needs of impoverished children around the world.

A memory quilt has the ability to bring comfort and healing as it honors your loved one and becomes a family heirloom to share with future generations.

A private consultation provides the opportunity to share your loved one’s story. You will be guided through the process of personalizing your memory quilt by using the pieces of a life lived and allowing us to arrange them into a beautiful pattern that will be cherished for years to come!

Quilts can be made from …

Adult/child/infant apparel, logowear, neckties, jerseys, pajamas, blankets, needlework, towels, bedding, hats, photos, poems, scripture verses, signatures, etc.

Fabrics chosen that reflect interests, hobbies, colors, etc. (ie: fishing, music, cars/airplanes/boats, farming, athletics, schools or universities, clubs, etc.)

"Together our imaginations are your only limit!"
