Charity Projects




Message from Donna Gollehon:

Calling all bags, not OLD bags, but all the bags for Mending in the Mountains! She would love to complete this project this month so we can start our new fall projects. We made about 80 kits and 70+ were returned. They are due August 15th!

Fall Charity Projects

After taking all your suggestions to heart, we are planning three charity projects this fall.


Be a Santa for a Senior

We will be making lap quilts through Home Instead. Goal is 20 quilts (50"x65"). On the August 25th Charity Sew Day we will be making kits from donated fabric to help get the ball rolling.

Fidget Mini-Quilts

Susan Freund shared a wonderful idea to make Fidget mini-quilts for patients with dementia. Home Instead is also interested and we believe other rest homes are as well. Susan has the directions and will share all the details.

Dog Beds

We are dedicating a Charity Sew Day to make dog beds in coordination with Kathy Howe. We all have an over abundance of scraps from our hyper-proudction during the pandemic. This will be a fun project for us! Naturally all the beds will go to Kathy for distribution. The tentative date is 10/27. We'll plan for 8 individuals at SOS and a possible ZOOM class for anyone else to wants to participate remotely.

NOTE:  Donations of fabric, quilt tops, and unfinished quilts may be accepted or rejected by Committee Chair and Co-chairs according to need and space available.  All other donations may be used at Guild fund raising events such as Garage Sales, etc. and stored by donator.   If we find we are in need of fabric or tops a call will be sent out.  We know how generous our Guild members are but we do not have the space to store all that is given.
