The Christmas Stocking Project has now evolved into making Back Pack for the adults and Christmas Stockings for the children. We started making stockings in 2008 and continue to donate them to the Salvation Army's McKenna's House, a adult shelter in Concord, NH. Since we started this mission the amount of beds have increased and we have geared up with the increase need.
Our Project begins with a “sit and sew” in July to get the projects started and ends in mid-December when the back packs and stockings are filled with donated personal care items, small toys and books, then delivered.
Again, a big thank you to those who have already made placemats. We have received so many thank you cards from people who are receiving this thoughtful gift from you.
Placemats are a wonderful mini quilt. You can practice machine quilting, hand quilting, bindings and enveloping. They can be 13″ by 19″ or 12″ x 18″ finished. Each side tells a story. What a wonderful way to give the Meals-On-Wheels Program clients a ray of sunshine. Because you care this program has been a blessing to many people who are house bound. They have been enjoyed by each person that has received one over the years. And the need continues as 20 new clients are added each month. Keep sewing those placemats ladies.

We delivered over 60 quilts over the holidays in 2018. These were sent to the Friends Program and Meals on Wheels. Our members have already made many quilts to be donated this year. The ladies have been so generous with their materials and time! Keep up the fantastic job.
Along with the community quilts we have now taken up making pillow cases for Concord Hospital Pediatrics. In December 2018, 114 pillow cases were delivered! Ladies, please continue to make them as we are planning on making deliveries 3 times a year. The children and parents are very thankful for the gift and how colorful the pillowcases are.
