Community Service Projects - our service project recipients/projects may vary from year to year based on member requests. The members choose which groups to support at the beginning of the year.

 

We have donated quilts, totes, toiletries, and other items to the local women's shelter, hospital, nursing homes, Coalition against Child Abuse, flood victims and the police department (for children), plus cash donations to local charities.

We have made quilts for Veterans thru the Quilts of Valor Organization. Hospice has received colorful pillowcases.

 

Amy's House: the local shelter for women and children can always use help.  A collection container is passed around during the meeting for any cash donations and we collect needed items for them.

 

GUIDELINES FOR OUTREACH QUILTS 

 

All fabrics should be good quality 100% cotton, prewashed and dried or quilt washed after construction.

 

Tied quilts should be made with 100% polyester batting only.  If you are using cotton or a cotton blend batt, machine quilting works best.
