"Our lives are like quilts - bits and pieces, joy and sorrow, stitched with love." - author unknown
At the Mourning Hope Grief Center, each family designs a quilt block in memory of their deceased loved one. Together, the quilts commemorate their uniquely personal grief experiences, while serving as a creative means for remembrance, expression, healing and hope.
The International Quilt Museum is home to the world's largest publicly held quilt collection and honors the cultural and artistic significance of quilts. This collection boasts numerous mourning, burial and remembrance quilts.
It's this common thread that binds together the missions of these two unique, Lincoln-based nonprofits. For every ticket sold to Common Threads, proceeds will be equally split to sustain children and teen programming at both organizations.
