Community Service

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.

Community service will again be collecting gift bags for the Salvation Army for Christmas.  We’d like to get a head start, since the pandemic will be slowing down the collection process.

 

 "Click Here" for gift bag instructions and the  Salvation Army wish list.  Please only use brand new items in the gift bag.

 

1 fat quarter makes 1 gift bag.  The pattern for the bag is also on our "Tips, Tricks and Tutorial" page.
 


This year, we want you to fill, tie, and label your gift bag.  Please attach a paper label on your filled bags indicating gender and age (0-3 years, 4-6 years, 7-10 years, 11-15 years).   If you want to donate additional empty bags, the Salvation Army can use those as well.  They are also collecting face masks for children, so feel free to make those as well for donation.

 We are now working on smaller projects, including making  pillowcases for foster care in Genesee County and surgical caps for kids undergoing surgery.  For the pillowcases and surgical caps kid friendly prints for a wide range of ages and fabrics that are something you would want to rest your head on are suggested.

                            All caps  will be laundered before donation.
