“Quilts That Care”
"Quilts That Care” is a grassroots/ pay it forward organization that was started by a local woman and fellow crafters from the greater Waterbury area. It is an organization that gathers twice a month at the Harold Leever Regional Cancer Center to create quilts to donate to people undergoing cancer treatment.
On Saturday November 10th at 2:00 pm, “Quilts That Care” is hosting an informational program at the Woodbury Public Library. Those attending the program will learn how the volunteers create one of their donated quilts. You will have the opportunity to make a quilted holiday hotplate and take it home with you. If you are interested, you will be given the information needed to join the group in their mission.
No quilting experience is necessary. If you can donate supplies, know ways to get supplies, cut fabric, iron, or coordinate colors, then you are welcome to join us. If you or someone you know has been touched by cancer, or you want to do something to help your community please join us for information, refreshments and prizes. Some lucky person will leave with a fabulous hand made lap quilt. Refreshments will be provided by the Woodbury Public Library.
Please register at the Woodbury Public Library or call the library at 203-263-3502. The program is free and open to the public.
If you are unable to attend on Saturday November 10th but would like to contribute, call Deb at 860-945-0184 or join the group at the Harold Leever Center , 1075 Chase Parkway, Waterbury on the first and third Monday of each month at 6:30 pm. Find them on Facebook at Quilts That Care.
