Love Sews Ministry Mission
Love Sews' mission is to make and provide custom quilts to those facing challenging life circumstances, in hopes of creating strength, hope, and a little bit of joy for the recipients. We are a Christian non-profit organization that works with individuals who are facing difficult times.
Love Sews Ministry was established in March 2013. To date our volunteers have completed more than 1,000 quilts that have been donated to individuals and families. So we are very excited about what God is doing and how He is using Love Sews Ministry to bring comfort, peace, and healing.
Quilts represent life…a story that is often mismatched; they bring comfort when ill, warmth when cold, security when alone, and most importantly, a constant reminder of the love and care sewn into each square on it's way to becoming a quilt...a hug from Jesus.
Quilts have always represented timeless art, most often displayed on walls. The wave of modern quilting has shifted into the philosophy that quilts should be completely functional and continually used. Quilting for a cause creates a binding group of people sharing the same passion and devotion for helping those in need. This enriching experience is gratifying for both the quilters and the recipients.
Here are just a handful of the stories of the people who have received their very own special quilt from Love Sews Ministry.
Paige has been diagnosed with breast cancer. She had the lump removed and is now waiting for that to heal before she starts radiation. Paige loves her quilt from Love Sews Ministry!
Bill has a new lease on life. Twelve years ago, he was diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. His diagnosis came as a shock, as there is no family history of lung disease. Bill’s lung function declined over the years, and he eventually required the assistance of supplementary oxygen. Doctors told him a lung transplant was critical to his survival. Thankfully, Bill received a lung transplant on December 7, 2018!
"Yesterday Dad received a quilt from Love Sews Ministry. Love Sews is an amazing ministry in Holland Michigan. We are SO thankful to Love Sews for the quilt, prayers and support. Dad loves his quilt!"

"Wanted you to have this pictures of Maddie and her blanket after her surgery. Everything went well. Her breathing was pretty labored in recovery, but she was in ICU. They checked out her esophagus & Trachea while in there and repaired. She has a cleft on her trachea and they did a medical treatment while in there to repair it. She's all set for her open heart surgery in April. Thank you for your loving prayers. Wanted you to have a picture to show the girls who made the blanket."
Our volunteers are the heart and soul of Love Sews Ministry. We can do nothing without them. Not only do they bring their sewing experience (or lack thereof), they bring enthusiasm, joy, love, a willingness to pray for hurting individuals and a servant's heart.
You do NOT need any sewing experience, we will teach you everything we know and walk you through each step of the quilt process. We provide all the materials, including the sewing machines!
