Charity Projects Open to Volunteers
The guild’s charity projects welcome volunteers throughout the year.
Who:Carol Arnold, project founder and coordinator
What:The project makes lap-size quilts (approx 40”x60”) for breast cancer patients of Dr. Senecal.
Volunteers are always needed for each phase of quiltmaking: selecting fabrics & patterns; cutting fabric; sewing blocks & assembling quilt tops; machine quilting; adding binding and labels.
When:Work at home on your own time schedule using your own fabric or kits made from donated fabric, or come any time during the group sew-in on the 4th Wednesday of the month, 10-3ish. Bring your machine if you want to sew (extension cord/power strip recommended). Help also needed to iron, cut/trim blocks, sew labels.
Where: United Methodist Church on Pioneer. Room rent is $2/per person.
Pillowcases for Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital
Who:Diane Elliott, coordinator
What:Make pillowcases from 100% cotton children’s novelty fabrics. Each patient at Mary Bridge is given a pillowcase to cheer his/her stay at the hospital and to take home. Directions are available for making a durable case with French seams.
You may use your own fabrics or sew from kits assembled by the group.
When:Sew at home on your own time schedule, or meet for a group sew-in monthly at Diane’s house. 2nd Tuesday of the month, 10-12 (resumes in January 2019).
Space is limited, but if more than 6 are interested, a second space can be opened up. No extra machines are needed at this point. Volunteers are welcome to drop in to socialize, work on kits & deliver cases made at home.
