Chilliwack PieceMakers Quilting Guild

We Care

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.

Youth Bags

Every second (odd) year the group make and fill 50 bags, with toiletries, gloves, socks and hats for disadvantaged youth in our community.

Youth Bags

For our newer members, every second year we make up 50 cotton bags of items we hope are useful to disadvantaged youth in our community.  The bags are approximately 16 inches by 18 inches with a drawstring fastening. There will be a box by registration for you to drop off your donations. We collect items over the year and deliver them to Chilliwack Community Services Youth Services and the Cyrus Centre.  The delivery of the bags will be Tues 3 Dec.  The filling of the bags will take place at the Sardis Library near the end of Novemeber, date to be announced. Thank you again for your generosity.
