Project Linus
Posted: 02 May 2017 ET
The Quilt Patch is committed to making quilts for children who need a security blanket for any reason. We support a number of community organizations which will make good use of the quilts and other comfy covers that we make and collect. Do something to make yourself feel warm and fuzzy this year and join us in several days of community service and sewing. Come for whatever time you have available. There is a job for everyone whether you are an accomplished sewer or not.

For those of you who wish to help but are unavailable to come and sew, we are happy to take any donated tops that need finishing, especially those appropriate for pre-teen and older boys. If you are looking through your work space and see things you know you’ll never finish (and we all have them,) we can turn them into treasures. You may drop them off any time at the Quilt Patch. We also collect finished blankets, comforters and quilts for these good causes. Please mark your donations with your name and contact information. Please read the information below from Project Linus about blanket/quilt requirements.

If you have 100% cotton fabric in good condition that you would like to donate, please make an appointment to drop it off at the shop. We particularly need backing fabric (approx. 1 1⁄2 yds or larger pieces.) Sadly, we have had too many occasions when sewing rooms have been cleaned out and everything dropped at the QP. We have neither the time nor resources to sort through it and also find somewhere to donate what we cannot use. Our mission is to create quilts for children who need them and we hope that you understand that we need to limit what we can accept.

Market Party
Posted: 02 May 2017 ET
One of our favorite events every year is Market Party. I’m off to Quilt Market in St Louis in May and hope to bring home oodles of new and interesting patterns, notions and fabrics. Our terrific staff will get busy making new models and we’ll unveil it all on Sunday, July 9th. There’s always food, fun, door prizes and favors so we look forward to sharing the excitement with you. Mark your calendars now. Tickets are free, albeit limited, and will be available June 1st. And right after Market Party, we’re off to Bernina University... never a dull moment! Stay tuned for updates on everything new and exciting.
Last Snail Mail Newsletter (PLEASE READ)
Posted: 02 Jan 2017 ET
As Chris says to me all of the time, “Mom, get into the 21st century!” so I’ve finally made the decision that this will be the last snail mail newsletter we will mail. Future copies will be sent via email. If you already receive it electronically, you’re all set. If not, we would appreciate it if you would give us your email address. You can sign up in the shop, give it to us when you’re checking out or email it to quiltpatch@vacoxmail.com. We will continue to print a limited number of newsletters to hand out in the shop. You can print one off when you receive the email or from our website www.quiltpatchva.com. It will look exactly like the hard copy. As always, we do not share or sell our customer list or contact information. Thanks for your help with this and for your patience as I make the transition to email addresses.....and wait for the “Way to go, Mom” from Chris!
