Deliveries to the Chilliwack Community In February
While delivering the quilts this month Ginger was invited in to view the children's room at Hospice to see how some of the quilts they receive from our guild are used; in this case to decorate the chairs in the lounge.
Ginger also chatted with three people at Community Policing and they told her how much the quilts are appreciated and that when they wrap a child up in one they are over the moon with happiness.
So heart warming to hear our efforts are very much appreciated; keep it going ladies.
Projects Completed At Home
Now that we are spending so much more time at home and in our sewing rooms there is much extra time to be spent making We Care quilts for our community.
The postings here will be of those that would have been shown at our We Care dispaly during the general meetings. Please share what you have made.
Keep up the great work ladies, our community will be so greatful once deliveries can be made again.
Deliveries to the Community
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.

Deliveries to the Chilliwack Community In November
Sat Nov 30 guild volunteers showed up to layout all the items to fill the bags. An assembly line was formed and the bags were filled, tagged for the gender and stacked ready for delivery. All this we completed in record time, just 30 minutes. Thank you to the guild members for your generous donation of items and to the ladies who showed up to do the filling.
