Loaded with Batting!
I cheer and applaud our ACQ members for their participation in the Drive Thru Events. They have been very successful for our Charity Quilts Committee. Each event and meet up helps prepare for the next. I am getting ready for the last one of the year with kits to sew, quilt and bind. We will also accept fabric donations. See you December 5th.
We are on the calendar to sew together every 4th Sunday from 11:30 till 4 pm, our next one being December 27, 2020. Please join in to connect over quilting ideas, stories and tips.
I found another Volunteers of America shelter that helps all kinds of people from families with children to Veterans. All year long I received the questions, “What kind of quilts do you accept? What size quilts?” Well, I found a shelter helping people get back on their feet that truly appreciates ACQ quilts. Unfortunately there are so many people and such a variety of people that all of our quilts seem “just right.” So I am looking forward to another delivery to the Family Motel this month.
Please see a few pictures attached to this article. The first is Case Manager Tori showing off one of the 22 quilts delivered to Sinton’s Sanctuary. The next is Peggy Jorgensen after loading 20 quilts into the back of her car before delivering them to Creative Needle for wild fire victims in Grand County, Colorado. The third photo is the variety of the 38 quilts delivered to the VOA Family Motel on Colfax Avenue.
