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.
