The Guild’s “Sit & Sew” in July was lots of fun. Everyone worked on various Community projects: quilts, pillowcases and backpacks. Try to come next year and visit while working on these items to be donated. This week I’ll be delivering 25 donated Community Quilts and 2 fidget squares. I know the residents will be happy to receive them just in time for cooler weather. More quilt kits will be available at the next meeting. See you there!
Here's the latest on the guild pillowcases. Over the summer I delivered 25 pillowcases to the pediatric unit at Concord Hospital. They were pleased to increase their supply. On our summer sit and sew, Joyce Lemay and I completed 8 cases. Also, I have 6 cases for a nursing home. When we meet in September, I will have kits ready for anyone who would like to make a pillowcase. You can also use your own fabric and the directions are on the web site. We're happy to receive your donations. They are for a very worthy cause.
We also make placemats for Meals on Wheels, here are just a few samples. We do enjoy bringing a little sunshine into these folks lives. We have supplied 100's over the years
The holiday time is stressful for individuals as well as families. We have supplied McKenna House with stocking for children and backpacks for teens and adults. These are filled not only with necessities but fun things too.
To give to others is a blessing not only for those receiving but also those of us that are so willing to give material, time and gifts to others.
