The Norwegian Ladies’ Sewing Society (Ladies’ Aid) has been in existence within Trinity since 1873. In 1960 Pastor Solberg suggested to the Trinity Church Women a new program of clothing for Lutheran World Relief. The project proved to be very successful – as of November 15, 1966, a total of 583 barrels had been filled. The quilters evolved from the program of clothing to making quilts for Lutheran World Relief and House of Hope. Over 100 quilts are sent to Lutheran World Relief for Distribution on a yearly basis and quilts are made on an as needed basis for House of Hope. The residents at House of Hope use the quilts while there and are then able to take them to their new apartment which hopefully brings some comfort to them. The ladies feel blessed to be able to do this and a sewing skill is not required. If you’re able to iron, cut material, visit, etc. you are welcome!
