Hello fellow Quilters!
The 2018 charity is Meals on Wheels. We will be making placemats that will be distributed to their clients along with the meals to brighten their day!
Placemats should be made in one of three sizes:
Small – 10 x 14
Medium – 12 x 18
Large – 14 x 20
There are no requirements in regards to designs or fabrics. Just think of something that would brighten someone’s day.
We will have challenges and demos to help build the number of donations we make as a guild. There will be prizes awarded!
We are encouraging participation from the quilting community as a whole, and ask that you share your makes and spread the word using the hashtags #modernquiltplacemats #centralohiomqgcharity2018 and please tag our Instagram @centralohiomqg so we can see what you’re making!
Along with the creative side is a call for donations. It was discovered that many of the clients were giving the donated meals to their pets. To help, we will collect unexpired coupons for pet food as well as placemats. When we have a demo day we will have a pet food drive.
Please check back for updates on challenges and demo days. If you have any questions, or need a mailing address to submit your placemat(s), please email our Charity Chair Lissa, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2017: We are excited to announce our 2017 charity: Days for Girls.
Our first sew-in will take place at the CML Dublin Branch library on Saturday, March 25!
