Donating Makes You Feel Good and Lets Others Know Someone Cares Enough To Share

The Gift of Giving

Want to share your work, make a project with purpose...? There are many organizations that can use your work to touch the lives of others including hospitals, Senior residences, and shelters.  Maybe you don't have time to make a quilt, how about placemats?             Here are a few places to get you started... 

It's Made!

Have no fear, if you make something there is someone who will have a happier day, just because you care enough to give. 

Local Quilt Guilds are a great resource for who could benefit from your treasures. They often sponsor "sew days" where you can give your time and use donated fabric.
