HOSPICE: UTQG has an ongoing community service project providing quilts for our local hospice centers. Making the quilts is a team effort shared by our members.
Community service provides kits from our donated fabric. Members sew quilt tops. Then tops, batting, and backing are assembled and other members quilt them. Then as the process continues, still other members add binding and a label.
The quilts are approximately 40" X 60" but can vary in size.
In the past two years we have provided between 100-150 quilts per year.
SPECIAL PROJECT: We are collecting wall hangings that you may have made but no longer want. These will be used to decorate the family respite room at the hospital. If you have any you would like to donate, be sure they have a sleeve and bring them to the November meeting.
23-24 Sew Along
We are super excited to see everyone for this year's sew along. Click below to find an overview and templates for the sew along. The overview contains links to the videos and templates if you choose to buy them from MSQC.
We will be meeting during the monthly sew together held on the second Saturday. Camille M. and Karen M. will be available to answer questions and demo techniques from 9am to 11am during each gathering.
