Community Service Projects 

 

 Ever year, guild members gather to have a sit-and-sew for one of our local non-profit organizations.  This year, our project is Adult Bibs for to be used by care givers who help feed people with difficulties feeding themselves.  This year members gathered to sew adult bibs for the Residency at Otter Creek. Previously we made "Fidget Quilts" for patients with Alzheimer's Disease, walker Bags for Home Helath & Hospice, pillow cases for the John Graham Emergency Center, Cancer Caps for Fletcher Allen Cancer Center, and dog and cat beds for the Addison County Humane Society.  We all save our left-over fabric and scraps and transform them into gifts of care and compassion.

The guild is also involved in the Linus Project, which provides quilts to give warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill.

Previously, we donated $800 to WomenSafe from our Christmas ornament sales at our 2010 quilt show, and a similar amount to Middlebury Community Cares for their community lunch program.  Sales of ornaments from the last show were gifted to Addison County Home Health & Hospice.
