We are a committee within the guild. There is no expectation that guild members participate, but we will welcome anyone who would like to. Do you like to quilt but your family and friends are now saying thank you through gritted teeth when you give them yet another quilted project? Is your scrap pile overflowing? Would you like to try a new pattern or technique but would like to try it out first? Would you like to do something for your community and make a difference to someone? Community Quilts might be the answer.
This is a list of the types of things we make, the organizations that we donate to, and the ladies who look after each category:
Breast Cancer Comfort Kits – bags and pillows supplied to our local hospital who give them to cancer surgery patients. Kits are available; instructions come with the kits and also are on the guild website.
North Island Health Newborn Baby quilts – Approximate 40”-45” square or 40”x45”
