Quilt Canada 2017 information

 

Community Outreach had a work bee at the home of Kathryn Karr to organize some donated fabric we're going to sell at our May meeting. Everyone worked really hard, we did have some fun!
 
 

Community Outreach (aka Quilts for Others)
NHQG has always been very busy with community service. We've had a challenge where members made a quilt top from a mixed bag of donated fabric scraps. Thirty three wonderful tops came back, were assembled and sent to our longarmers for quilting. We've donated quilts to some womens' shelters throughout the Niagara area and we continue to support familes who have suffered a devastating fire. On average we send out approximately 60 to 80 quilts a year, all through the loving hands of guild members.

Quilts to Slave Lake, AB
Members of our guild completed 60 quilts that were sent to Slave Lake, AB. A local trucking firm took these quilts to Edmonton for free. These quilts were for members of the community who lost almost everything to a devastating fire in 2016. More are still being assembled and will be going to Fort McMurray for fire victims as well.

Here are some pictures:

Meals On Wheels Project:
The Meals On Wheels project continues to be extended to this past year's Christmas project and into the future. Guild Members will make quilted placemats again.. In previous years, these placemats have been greatly appreciated by the Meals On Wheels recipients. Here's a sample:
