Museum Quilt Guild maintains an active community service program. Each year we host 2 work meetings where members gather to work on quilts which will be distributed into our local community according to need. Members also donate quilts they have made themselves. Currently we distribute to the VA Medical Center, All Babies Cherished, Brooklyn Street Migrant Children's Outreach Center and the YWCA. We also distribute to local families who may have suffered a tragedy as well as on the national level to those that have endured catastrophic situations.
2020 Schedule of Workdays
March 21, 2020. After our regular guild business meeting we will gather to work on making blocks, assembling quilt tops, basting and quilting. Lunch will be soup and salad as well as other foods brought in by members.

March 2020 - We are now working on smaller projects, including making heart pillows for cancer patients and pillowcases for foster care in Genesee County and surgical caps for kids undergoing surgery.
