Museum Quilt Guilds maintains an active Community Service Outreach program. We hold work days twice a year and members also donate quilts and items they have made themselves. Currently we supply quilts and donations to the Brooklyn Street Migrant Children's Outreach Center, All Babies Cherished and the YWCA.
In addition to quilts, we supply toiletries and personal items to the battered women's shelter which is part of the Genesee County YWCA Outreach Program.
We will also supply quilts as needed to local families suffering personal tragedy as well as quilts on a national level to those in catastrophic situations.
Brickhouse Corners Fair
Each year the Museum Quilt Guild sponsors a booth of show and tell quilts and boutique items for sale at the Brickhouse Corners Fair, the first Saturday in September. It is a large crafting/vendor event and is always a good spot to promote our guild and sell raffle tickets during the year of our quilt show.
Each year the Museum Quilt Guild, along with many other local organizations decorates a Christmas tree according to the theme set by the Holland Land Office Museum. There is a large Gala and the event is open to the public for about a month. It is a fundraising opportunity for the Museum.
July 4th Picnic in the Park
Each year the local Arts Council, GoArt, sponsors a large picnic in the park at Centennial Park on Richmond Avenue, across from the NYS School for the Blind. The event attracts hundreds of people each July 4th, and there are many vendors, local musicians, crafters etc.
