Charity Sew Days

Charity sewing days are used for members to come and work on quilts that will be donated to the women’s transition home, Cridge House and Anney’s Closet. Charity sewing days are usually  held once a month on a Monday. Charity  sewing days will be added as they are scheduled. For more information please contact charityquilts@gmail.com

 

Charity Sew Days are cancelled until further notice.

Preferred Sizes for Charity Quilts

For the benefit of the new members who have joined the guild over the past few months, I thought I would take this opportunity to review the minimum size for the different types of quilts that Transition House needs.

Baby quilts – 37” by 50”

Single bed quilts – 50” by 70”

Double bed quilts – 65” by 75”

Although it is wonderful to receive donations of completed quilts, we recognize that not everyone can wrestle a large quilt around on their domestic machine, so we are grateful to have a group of women who will quilt tops that are donated.

Canada Comforts/Compassionate Warehouse

If people bring washcloths, soaps, shampoos, etc. to the Church of the Advent, they can put them in the blue Rubber Maid bin with Compassionate Warehouse/Canada Comforts sign on it. It is in the lobby, in a small alcove/open coat cupboard, directly across from the double doors of our meeting room. If you include your name and phone number or email address on your donation, they will receive the occasional newsletter from Canada Comforts.
