Stitch n' Give

Stitch n' Give is an outreach ministry of CTK Women who create quilts that go to Lutheran World Relief where they are distributed worldwide to people affected by conflict, epidemics, and disasters regardless of any religious affiliation. In past years their quilts have gone to the Philippines, India, and Africa as well as locally to Camp Pendleton. The quilts are used for hospital and home bedding, roof covering/walls, backpacks, infant care and display mats for market vegetables and wares.


They meet the 3rd and 4th Wednesdays of the month throughout the year to baste and tie quilts. *No sewing experience is needed, they will teach you what you need to know. All levels of participation appreciated.

They are written in basic English and provide translation advice on a variety of linguistic, interpretational and cultural issues that are especially relevant for translators. Sue's role is to provide missionary care for Wycliffe members across the US and around the world so they can serve more effectively on the Bible translation team. Today, around 1,900 languages are still waiting for a Bible translation to begin, and Wycliffe is working faster than ever to reach those languages as soon as possible.
