Community Service Update – October 2023
Author: Judi C, Chair, Community Service Committee
Here are some organizations to think about this fall for quilt donations:
Terra Centre: They give hampers to their clients in December (baby or crib size)
Blankets of Love: They require 550 quilts to deliver to mental health care patients in the hospital on Christmas Day (lap or twin size):
Northern Alberta Fire Victims: Carolyn Ross is storing them at her house until they are needed and a health care group servicing the area will distribute the quilts.
And of course, many other charities have clients in need.
If I do not have time to make a quilt, what can I do?
- Donate batting. Even those scrappy bits are much appreciated.
- Sew on a binding and label.
- Sew a quilt top.
- Drop in to a sew day to sort fabric, cut pieces for tops or backings, and join us for ice cream and a lot of laughter.
- We have lots of fabric, kits, and partially finished tops.
The next sew day is Tuesday, October 10th.
Call if you have any questions.
We will continue to meet on the second Tuesday of the month at the Focus on Fibre Arts Association (FFAA) Studio at 10554 – 110 Street NW.
Use the back door.
The next sew days are Tuesday:
- October 10
- November 14
- December 12
