We Care Workshop

Today was our quilt guild’s We Care Workshop. We had 29 guild members in attendance and a total of 35 quilts were worked on. These quilts will go a long way to filling the need in our communities’ hospitals, long term care homes, and women’s shelters.

The We Care Committee did an excellent job in securing an excellent facility. We each had our own table to set up our machines. We worked in pairs to share irons and cutting boards. Everyone had plenty of room. The committee prepared kits for several different quilt patterns. All strips, backing, and batting had been pre-cut for you. Some kits even included pre-made binding! There were also samples of the quilts made up and attached to the wall so if you got stuck, you could quickly re-orient yourself by looking at one of the samples.
Almost everyone left with their quilt top basted and ready to quilt when they get got home. It will be wonderful to the see the “train” of quilts at the next guild meeting later this month!
When a large group gets together to work towards a common goal, it is amazing what can be accomplished! Many hands make light work!

  1. It looks like everyone had a great day sewing and creating. What a wonderful way to spend a day.

    I’m sorry to hear about the loss of King. He looks like a true friend and family member.

  2. What a great set up you had to work in, the samples on the wall are so cheery. One looks like the pattern Shelina was making for her charity quilts. Which one were you making?

  3. It looks like you all had a great day. It’s so much easier to get a lot done when you have a setup, everything cut for you and friends to make the day go faster. Congratulations to you all on a day well spent. I’m sure the quilts will all be loved and appreciated.

  4. I guess we will wait to see a pic of the one or ones that you were working on since that sewing machine was acting up? It looks like a terrific place to have a sewing session and the committee had things ready so you could hit the ground running.

    We will be having our spring sew-in next month once I get the dates scheduled, that is!

  6. That’s a great effort all of you. Congratulations, I love it when quilters make for others less fortunate than themselves. It’s a fun sharing time all working together. I’m sure the eventual owners will love their quilts!
