Community Projects

Through Community Projects, our guild members create finished quilts that are distributed to various charitable causes such as women’s shelters, Hospice, veterans, nursing homes, etc. Our guild members completed more than 160 quilts this year for the community!

Support is needed throughout the entire year, and there are many ways to contribute:

  • Take a quilt kit to work on at home.
  • Volunteer to quilt a top.
  • Donate fabric, batting, or sewing supplies.
  • Notify the board of local causes with an immediate need.
  • Attend our annual workshop at which we bind the quilts and add a finishing label.
  • Collect and distribute the finished quilts.

Donations of completed tops and/or finished quilts are especially appreciated.
