  • Sign up for any club time in August to help sew or serge. 
    There are no fees and it doesn’t matter if you are a club member.
    Bring a friend if you like! Bring your own fabric to work on or work with donated fabrics.
  • Donate fabric, batting or polar fleece.
  • Make 18” blocks or 5’ x 7’ quilts at home and drop off
  • Cash donations also accepted.

  1. For fabric donations, please follow these guidelines:
  • 5’ X 7’ (60” X 84”) batting and 100% cotton or flannel backings
  • 5’ X 7’ fleece to use for filling and/or backing
  • 1/2 yard or larger quilting cottons in solids or prints, patriotic or not, (avoid feminine colors and patterns)

Summer is here, and between all those road trips you have planned out, you may need to sneak in a project here and there in preparation for these trips. We are helping you plan your projects around those summer travel plans by giving you our Top 5 Summer Travel Projects. These projects make the perfect, handy items you can bring with you on your next summer road trip.

1. This Back Seat Hanging Trash or Toy Bin is the perfect way to keep your car tidy during those long road trips. Teach the kiddos to throw away their garbage or store their toys in these, and you will have less clean up when the trip is over!
