Two Harbors, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- A quilting group in Two Harbors has brought comfort to thousands of families over the years.

The Peacemakers was started in 1982 by a group of women looking for a church mission project.

Once a week they gather in the basement of Emmanuel Lutheran church to assemble warm quilts for those in need.

Those on the receiving end of these colorful quilts include anyone from school kids to senior citizens to victims of house fires and floods.

But they're not the only ones who benefit from this kindness and generosity.
