Hello friends – We’ve got a MEET-UP / OPEN SEW planned for this Saturday Sept 25th.
Headed by Sarah Fader and our Charity team.
Sarah presented our new quilt drive initiative at our recent guild meeting -New Jersey is receiving about 10,000 Afghan evacuees who will be sheltered at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst for an undetermined amount of time.
As we will soon be welcoming Afghan refugee families to our area, we will be collecting quilts specifically for this purpose.
Anyone can participate in whatever way they are able to.
We will be collecting already finished quilts, and blankets at this time and can supply batting and backing if you have a finished top ready to donate.
We will keep you posted about where/when we will be collecting finished items in the future.
Project Linus is collecting baby sized quilts, so we will focus on larger pieces – from lap/throw size quilts and up.
The pattern = it is up to you on how simple or complex you’d like to make it. There is no theme or restrictions. Only that it can be washed, used, and loved.
If you would like to attach a welcome note – please do.
