We would like to thank everyone who contributed to our successful year of donating quilts & Christmas stockings.

July, 2017 — 50 quilts to Camp Hope at Edward / Elmhurst Hospital, Naperville.

Sept, / Oct. 2017 — 20 Quilts & 75 Pillowcases sent via Cheryl Parker to Houston, Texas, after Hurricane Harvey. Additional quilts, fabric and batting sent to a Quilt Guild near Houston, Texas.

Oct. 2017 — 400 Christmas stockings donated for the Military personnel.

Nov. 2017 — 12 Quilts donated to the Joliet Community Hospice.

Feb. 2018 — 12 Quilts & 20 pillowcases donated to the Ronald McDonald room at Edward /Elmhurst Hospital, Naperville
* 23 Quilts & 20 pillowcases donated to “360 ” Youth Services on Naperville, IL.
* 12 Quilts & 20 pillowcases donated to the Ronald McDonald House at Central DuPage Hospital, Winfield, IL.

March 2018 — 14 Quilts donated to Angel Grace Hospice of Bolingbrook, IL.
We are currently working on more quilts for “360” Youth Services. They need larger quilts for teenagers, both boys and girls. They also serve the LGBT community and youths who have aged out of Foster care. We are always in need of “Longarmers” to help to quilt the larger quilts.

I have cut & packaged 200 Christmas stocking kits to make for our donation this Oct. I have simplified the directions since the stockings DO NOT have to be quilted. I also ask that you use the stocking that I have cut as a pattern & make several more stockings from your own Holiday fabric.
We have received a request for some patriotic wheel chair quilts. About 36″ x 48″.
We will be donating another 50 quilts to the Camp Hope Project in July. Those quilts should be about 36″ x 48″.
We are always happy to accept unwanted fabric & batting that we will use for the donation quilts.

Please continue to save your “UPC” codes from the Hobbs batting & turn them into us at the Guild meetings. We will always have quilt kits & quilts that need to be “quilted” at our table at the Guild meetings. Stop by & check out what is available. We also accept any quilts that you have made at home to deplete your stash. Thanks to all those who participate in these endeavors to help others.
