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 2023.
Visit the Youth Bag Page below for more details.
If you need batting, labels or backing for We Care quilts please email Naida or the guild address with the details. They can be picked up from the We Care committee at the meetings or arrangments can be made for pick up at Cozy Cottons Quilting.
Collecting We Care Quilts Again
Since we are meeting at the church again all We Care quilts will be delivered to the meeting nights.
Please be sure you have a PieceMakers label sewn on the back.
Community 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.
Every second (odd) year the group make and fill 50 bags, with toiletries, gloves, socks and hats for disadvantaged youth in our community.
