Donation quilts are constructed, as a group project, once a year after the guild meeting. We call it a "Quilt-a-thon" and we sew quilt tops, layer and baste quilts, turn them inside-out so no binding is required, and quilt or tie the quilts.
You can make donation quilts at home and bring them to guild meetings to be handled by our donation quilt coordinator. She keeps track of which organizations, hospitals and shelters want quilts, and of what type (girl, boy, baby, adult) and size, and delivers the quilts. She’ll even take pet pads to the Humane Society and grieving envelopes to the neonatal ICUs.
Here are the quilt sizes needed:
Pet pads of all sizes are needed.
In 2016 we created and donated almost 1000 items!!
Volunteer positions and/or duties that are available:
Lecturer or teacher: Each year the guild schedules two programs that our members present. One is a trunk show and the other is a mini-workshop. We need volunteers to provide these programs. If you are willing to present one of these programs or know of another member who would, contact Marcia Kramer. If you have an idea and are interested in scheduling a class, Marcia will work with you on the details.
