Pat Anglin Cuddly Quilts for Kids Project & Workshops
Baby, oh Baby – A couple of times a year we have our Pat Anglin Cuddly Quilts for Kids Workshop. Members gather for the Guild’s big community project workshop. We spend the day making baby or youth quilts to give to children in crisis. Pat Anglin, in the mid 90s, saw the need to supply charitable organizations with baby quilts. The members of QUILT voted to sponsor the project and committed to devote time each year to making baby quilts. Several years later, after Pat’s death, the project was given her name to honor her commitment.
Stay tuned for the announcement of this year’s workday: date, time and location.
Quilts of Valor
“The mission of the QOV Foundation is to cover ALL war wounded and injured service members and veterans from the War on Terror whether physical or psychological wounds with Wartime quilts called Quilts of Valor (QOVS). Or as a six year old put it, “When the ‘sholders’ are ‘warring’ and they come home and are hurt, the quilt makes them feel all comfy.” This foundation is not about politics. It’s about people.” www.qovf.org
Har-Ber High School Quilt Club
At it’s June 2013 meeting, the board voted to partner with a new club that will begin in the 2013-2014 school year at nearby Har-Ber High School in Springdale. It is the hope that interest will be cultivated in these young people for the passion that we have. More info will be posted as the group gets started in the fall semester of 2013. If you have ideas or think of ways that you can help, please contact club sponsor and guild member, Melissa Davis.
