Charity work

Ongoing projects

We try to have regularly scheduled charity sewing days on Saturdays and aim for once a month when we don’t have a workshop scheduled. Members also sew at home to contribute to our selected causes.

Sewing for children

In 2019, members voted to support three organizations that support children.

In 2019, we also donated quilts to Davis Street Methodist Church for their newly remodeled nursery and toddler rooms. We are very appreciative of the church for providing us a place to meet.

We donated quilts and other items to various organizations for their fundraisers including:

During 2017 we began making quilts to contribute to NALES for children who have lost a parent in law enforcement. In 2018, we made an all-out commitment to NALES and our members donated 46 quilts in October 2018. Some of these were a result of our 2018 President’s Challenge.

Sewing for adults

Members of our group save their fabric scraps and use them to stuff pillows for cats awaiting adoption. They are donated on a regular basis to Sparkle Cat Rescue.
