The Community Projects/Charity Quilt sew-in will be held the first Saturday of every month from 10 am - 3 pm. All members are welcome to attend. You can bring your machine or just come by and help out.
When creating quilts for a community project or charity please do all of the sewing on the quilt by machine to ensure durability. Hand-stitched or tied quilts are not durable for washing, and tied quilts are a danger to young children. Please don’t use invisible thread as it wont stand up to high heat in hospital/industrial dryers.
Contact the current Community Projects/Charity Quilt Committee for additional information.
