Quilt Group

Holy Cross Quilters meet on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month at 9:30 a.m. and again at 1:00 p.m. Their quilts are distributed to local groups such as the Children’s CabinetVA Sierra Nevada Healthcare System, Hosanna Home, the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Renown Medical Center, Children in Transition in the Washoe County School District, the Ronald McDonald House, and Leah’s Home. The quilts are distributed internationally through Lutheran World Relief. In 2017, the quilters made 132 full-size quilts and 56 smaller neonatal quilts. Twice a year in worship the quilts are displayed and blessed before they are distributed as a sign of God’s love for a broken world.

Close Knit Friends

The Close Knit Friends group makes and donates afghans and other items to people in need in our community as well as small afghans for infants baptized at Holy Cross. If you are a beginning knitter they are happy to teach and help you!
