Members of Seymour Quilters Guild make and donate quilts to a variety of organizations and people in need throughout the year.
First 2018 Project: 30″ X 36″ wheelchair quilts
Quilts due by June Luncheon!
Many people find themselves confined to a wheelchair and in care. This life-altering event can be incredibly difficult for both them and their families. Our quilts will be donated to care facilities on the North Shore. We hope our quilts will bring some small measure of comfort and warmth to those who receive them.
As a big “THANKS!” to all who deliver a completed wheelchair quilt, there’ll be a draw prize (one entry per quilt) to be picked at our June luncheon (the deadline for this project)!
Other Quilt sizes for Donation
Although our first project this year is for wheelchair quilts, there is also often a need for twin-sized quilts. If you wish to make a quilt for donation, and are willing to go a little bigger, feel free to make something you are inspired to create.
Look out for a Community Quilt table at our monthly meetings and stand by for other initiatives and projects planned for later this year. Ideas and suggestions are welcome! Please call or email me, Penny N, with regards Community Quilts.
