- 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. Good quality cotton thread is also helpful.
We cannot accept other types of fabric or sewing notions.
