Help make quilts for charities! Besides the wonderful camaraderie, it is a place where new quilters can receive guidance and seasoned quilters can learn new techniques.
Comfort Quilts welcomes all interested members, so consider joining the fun! We make lap-size quilts for hospitals, shelters, individuals in need of comfort, and fund raisers.
Comfort Quilt meetings are held on scheduled Wednesdays between 9:30 and 3:30. You can stay for all or part of the day. Bring your sewing machine and your lunch. Fabric, batting and basic quilting tools donated by members and others are available for your use. Infrequently meetings need to be cancelled at the last minute. If in doubt or coming for the first time, please check.
If your schedule doesn’t allow you to participate in our daytime Comfort Quilt sessions, we also prepare pre-cut kits. Pick up a kit at guild meetings from the Comfort Quilt table and return for distribution when it is finished, no deadlines.
Stop by the Comfort Quilts table at our next guild meeting. We look forward to welcoming you.
If you know of any organization or anyone that could benefit from our quilts, let us know.
Over the past years some of our quilts have gone to Kids in Crisis, Maria Fareri Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Westchester Medical Center Behavioral Unit, Blythedale Hospital, Putnam/Northern Westchester Women’s Resource Center, Ossining Children’s Center, Northern Westchester Hospital and Ann’s Place as well as to many fundraisers and ailing individuals.
