The Quilters Hall of Fame applauds the Lutheran World Relief Quilt and Kit Ministry for their determined endeavors to meet the needs of people affected by poverty and disaster. In 2021 we will award them the Crystal Thimble Award for their significant impact in the world of quiltmaking. LWR Mission Quilts are highly regarded throughout the world because of their quality and consistency. Considering LWR’s first quilts in 1945 given to families in war-torn Europe to today’s annual average world distribution of 300,000 quilts, it is clear to the TQHF Selection Committee Lutheran World Relief is their choice for the Crystal Thimble Award in 2021.
The Crystal Thimble Award is new in 2021 and is to recognize not-for-profit organizations that have had a significant impact in the world of quilting.
Please join us in honoring Lutheran World Relief Quilt and Kit Ministry at Celebration 2021, July 15 – 17, 2021.
