Quilt Group

Holy Cross Quilters meet every Thursday at 9:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Their quilts are distributed to local groups such as the Children’s Cabinet Veteran’s in Transition, 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 Women and Children’s Center of the Sierra. The quilts are distributed internationally through Lutheran World Relief. In 2022 the quilters made 180 full-size quilts and 58 smaller neonatal quilts. Since 2007, 1800 quilts have been given to our brothers and sisters in our community and around the world. Twice a year in worship the quilts are displayed and blessed before they are distributed. We trust that God’ love will go wherever each quilt is sent and trust that each quilt we have created becomes an expression of love and a blessing for all those who receive them.


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!
