Make a quilt and make someone happy!
Christmas Stocking Pattern -- If you cannot attend the
November Day Bee when the guild gathers to make the stockings,
and you would like to make one at home, you can download the
instructions and the pattern below.
One of our guild's ongoing projects is making and donating Comfort Quilts to
places such as nursing homes, hospitals, Hospice, and Safe Harbor. We have
added giving the Sheriff's Department a couple of quilts to give to small
children who have to be removed from their homes for their safety. In 2015,
we donated 221; in 2016, only 95. We need to start NOW to increase the
number for this year. If every member would make 2 this year, we'd be back
on track! So, look through your stash, watch for bargains, look and patterns,
and get started!
These do not have to be intricate - simple patterns and simple quilting work
well. If you find that you can make only quilt TOPS (just that layer - not 3
layers, sandwiched, quilted, bound, and labeled), that's ok, too. Give your quilt
top to the committee along with backing and binding fabric, and we'll do the
