You’ve heard us talking about it, but maybe you have a few questions about March Madness… well we have all the answers!
Check out the information below and leave a comment should you still have a lingering query. Hope to see LOTS of you there!
When is March Madness?
March Madness is from 9am – 5pm on Saturday, March 29th.
Do I have to stay the entire time?
No! You can pop in anytime, make a square, piece some strips, do some free-motion quilting or just drop off a donation of fabric, thread, snacks, etc.
Where is the event located?
Church of Latter Day Saints | 209 Mountain Avenue West Caldwell, NJ (Map)
Our hosts are Stephanie Mullin and Colleen Wiest
This is a charity event right? So what charities are we sewing for?
We’ll be making twin-sized quilts and pillowcases for Shelter our Sisters, an organization that helps women in Bergen County leave abusive situations. Read more about them here.
We’ll also be making crib-sized quilts for Quilts for Kids.
Additionally, we would like to have a quilt or two on hand for crises or drives that may arise in the coming months.
What do I need to bring?
Good question! Here’s what you’ll need to pack:
– Your own sewing machine
– Basic sewing kit (thread, scissors, pins, bobbins, etc.)
– Iron/ironing board/pressboard (if you have one)
– Cutting mat, ruler, rotary cutter
– Extension cord/surge protector
– Fabric/thread to donate
What don’t I need to bring?
Batting! NJMQG owns a roll.
I can’t attend the March Madness event but still want to help. Can I?
Yes! We need donations of fabric, thread, orphan squares, binding strips – anything that will help us complete quilts to donate!
Can I donate prior to the event?
Yes! Bring your fabric and sewing donations to the NJMQG Meeting on Thursday, March 20th at Rock Paper Scissors between 6pm & 8pm. After that, drop them at West Caldwell LDS Church the day of the event.
What else do I need to know?
There will be some cool surprises, pizza for lunch, lots of sewing, and a chance to work alongside some really talented quilters. There’s no better way to spend a Saturday! Hope to see you there.
I will do my best to come and help.
