Patchwork of Love

The Giving Tree

Village at Luther Square Birthday Party

“Since there will never cease to be some in need on the earth, I therefore command you, open your hand to the poor and needy neighbor in your land." - Deuteronomy 15:11

Goal of Ministry

Patchwork of Love’s purpose is to produce quilts and knitted items for those needing comfort in body and/or spirit.


They meet at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Claire Wolfe Lounge.  This room is accessible from a small parking lot off of Caton Ave.  There is a wheelchair ramp leading to the door.


They meet on Tuesday mornings from 9:00am to 11:30am.

Who They Serve

Their quilts are sent to other countries and parts of the United States through Lutheran World Relief Disaster Relief.  Quilts are sent annually to Bethesda Home for Children located in Meadville, PA.  Quilts are also prepared for various agencies in Erie County who work with the poor.  Quilts are presented at baptisms and to honor graduates.
Knitted items are made for inner-city school children and prayer shawls are sent to our homebound folks of those needing a remembrance of God’s love.

Who Volunteers?

Men and women from St. Paul’s and various other churches volunteer.  Some youths come on Monday evenings.  Not all come with skills in sewing or using sewing machines.  Some people cut fabric, others tie knots, but all are passionate about bringing the love of Christ to others through their work.

Who to Contact

Currently our coordinator is Barb Toy who can be reached at PatchworkofLove@stpaulserie.org.
