Fabric Kits Service Project

When

Thursday, July 11th from 2:00pm – 4:00pm

LWR Kits are specifically designed to help people coping with poverty, disaster, conflict and more. Sewing is a valuable skill that can help men and women earn reliable income. Lutheran World Relief Fabric Kits provide fabric and thread for vocational training programs teaching sewing and for newly trained tailors to launch their sewing business. LWR Fabric Kits are highly regarded throughout the world because of their quality and consistency.

On Thursday, July 11 at 2 p.m., you are invited to help cut fabric and assemble the LWR Fabric Kits. Please contact Pastor Valerie at vstrand@spdlc.org if you have any questions. In the meantime, we are collecting the following items:

  1. Spools of matching or neutral-colored, general-purpose thread 250-300 yards each
  2. Cotton or cotton-blend fabric (no knits). Fabric should NOT have religious symbols, messages, US flags, patriotic or military symbols or camouflage. Each piece should be at least as large as the following dimensions. (We will cut the fabric to the appropriate size.):
  • 60” wide fabric   2.25 yards
  • 44” wide fabric   3 yards
  • 36” wide fabric   4 yards

We welcome financial support to assist with shipping of the LWR Kits. Checks may be made payable to SPD, with LWR Kits in the memo line, or online at spdlc.org/egiving, to the Angel Fund—noting LWR Kits.
