Each year, the guild focuses on a charity to donate to. In the past we have made quilts for stuffed animals to be donated to children in shelters, book bags (with books) to donate to kids, and placemats/mug rugs to donate to Meals-on-Wheels clients and volunteers.
In 2016 one of our charity projects is to prepare baby quilts for single moms. There will be baby quilt kits available at meetings for members to take home to make, or you can create your own baby quilt (approximately 40″ x 45″), using your own stash.
The deadline for the Baby Quilt project is the October 2016 Guild meeting.
