The Great Winter Warm-Up

Get involved with something big—record-breaking big! Help us touch the lives of people in need while celebrating MCC's 100th anniversary. We're attempting to collect 6,500 comforters to deliver to people affected by conflict and disaster around the world. A handmade comforter provides not only warmth but also a tangible message to people in places like Syria or Ukraine that their needs are not forgotten. We need your help to reach our goal of 6,500 handmade comforters on January 18, 2020. Here’s how you can get involved.


Create a comforter

Make a comforter at any time leading up to the event. Comforters are made from three layers. The top is made from squares of colourful fabric sewn together, it’s filled with winter-weight quilt batting and backed with fabric. Once the pieces are assembled, layers are held together with knots of double-strand crochet cotton or yarn. Find the full instructions for making a comforter here.


Host a comforter-making event

Making comforters can be a great engagement activity for churches, community groups and sewing clubs. Hosting an event fosters fellowship and helps include people with a range of sewing abilities in the comforter-making process. Beginners can help tie the knots in the comforters while intermediate and experienced sewers piece together the tops. At the end of the day, you’ll have more comforters made than if you’d worked alone. If you’re interested in hosting a comforter-making event, please contact your local MCC office.
