Charitable Quilts - July 2021

July 01, 2021 5:14 PM | Lynn Roginski (Administrator)

I love questions! I believe questions are always in order. I was recently asked a question that did not occur to me. The answer to the question is YES it is perfectly OK to use your own fabric and batting to make quilts for charity. We all have quilts we have started and need to finish. Go ahead and finish and give to someone who will love to cuddle up in it. 

More quilts were donated to the VOA Family Motel at the end of June.  Once again, they were put on chairs in the lobby. This is done so they are not forgotten in a supply closet but chosen and loved right away. Also the people who work the front desk are unbelievable busy. 

The 20 quilts donated this month were particularly bright and cheerful for summer. I hope the people and families are able to find happiness as they use the quilts for picnics or movie parties. 

The next ACQ Drive Thru at the church is Saturday August 21st   I look forward to seeing you to receive and hand out tops and quilts.

The next Charity Zoom Sew is Sunday July 25th 11:30 am to 4:00 pm. You are invited to join us to sew, share stories and ask questions.
