How Can You Help?
Quilters are known for their generosity when it comes to helping those less fortunate or those stricken by illness or disaster. We have a number of charitable projects going on in the shop that we thought you might like to know about and possibly get involved in. Some, like those listed above, have regularly scheduled meetings and so they are easy to post. Others meet at a random time convenient for those involved or, we serve as a drop off site for things you do at home and we deliver to those in need. At any rate, we wanted you to be aware of these efforts in case you were able to help out. If you see something that interests you, let us know and we'll keep you in the loop as far as upcoming meeting times. In addition to Comfort Quilts and Case for Smiles (see BOMs and Other Stuff) some other efforts are:
Reach to Recovery Tote Bags
Developmental Hearts for Premies
Doggie neckerchiefs and pet food collection
Collection Center for pet bed scraps
Food Larder donations
Burp cloths for Doylestown Hospital
