The churchwide executive board of Women of the ELCA met April 20–21, 2012, in Itasca, Il.(suburban Chicago), and endorsed the Lutheran World Relief 2013 Quilt Campaign.

In 2013, LWR will challenge Lutherans to reach an unprecedented milestone in the LWR Quilt & Kit Ministry—creating 500,000 LWR Mission Quilts in one year. The goal represents a 25 percent increase in the average number of quilts created for LWR in any given year. “It’s ambitious, but attainable with the partnership and support of Women of the ELCA,” says a LWR spokeswoman. Further details, including special events and resources, will be announced at a later point.
