The Guild is blessed with having the most wonderful group of friendly and talented ladies as members. Our members make approximately 130 “We Care Quilts.” a year for distribution into the community. These quilts go to various groups, including, but not limited to, the hospice, hospital baby unit, mother and baby programs and victim services.
The We Care Committee usually holds a We Care Workshop once per year in the spring. All material (cotton for the top, batting and backing) is provided. Kits are also available throughout the year. WE CARE
We Care quilts are welcome all year round. The We Care Committee will supply batting and backing upon request as well as labels for the back of the quilt. Placing your name on the label is encouraged but not required.
Every second (odd) year the group make and fill 50 bags, with toiletries, gloves, socks and hats for disadvantaged youth in our community.
In this time of yet another “stay at home” directive I thought about the toques for the Youth Bags. For members who are not aware of the bags, every second year the Guild puts together a cotton bag containing items for disadvantaged youth in our community.
Our next delivery will be December 2021.
Visit the Youth Bag Page below for more details.
Kits or Supplies
If you would like a quilt kit to sew up for the community please contact the our committee through the guild email.
We will make arrangements for pick-up or delivery.
We also have fabric for quilt backs and batting if needed.
Collecting We Care Quilts Again
Since we are not meeting face-to-face we have setup two drop off zones at two of our members homes. (Their addresses have been emailed to you via the guild address.) They have volunteered to collect the quilts and hold them until pick and delivery can be made by the We Care Committee. Please be sure you have a PieceMakers label sewn on the back, if you don't have one, they can be picked up from our volunteer homes pervious to dropping off your quilts.
