New Requests for Community Quilters

New Needs for Oncology Department & Head Start Kids

Hey Community Quilters (aka EVERY Guild member!)

Don’t forget that we will be meeting at Ruth’s Family Fabrics in Waldport this coming Thursday, 11/1, from 10 to approximately 2.  We have a lot of “projects” we will be working on, but you don’t need to bring a sewing machine, just your creativeness and willingness to work!

Oncology Department Chemotherapy Bags

We’ve received a call just this week from the Oncology Dept at the Newport Hospital.  They need little bags with straps to hold the container containing chemo drugs.  Patients can put the container into the bag and carry it discretely.  We have a “template” and we will be creating these bags this week.

Nap Quilts for Head Start Preschoolers

We are now supplying Head Start with small quilts for the children to nap on.  There are a lot of kids in these programs, and they are ultimately going to need over 100 quilts!  Ultimately they would like to be able to send the quilts home with the children once they have “graduated,” so the need will be ongoing.  We have already supplied them with 40 quilts, so we are well on our way.  Now, we need to fire up those sewing machines and make a bunch of small quilts, minimum 40” square up to 4X5.

Hope to see a bunch of you on Thursday!
