Organized in October, 2010, the Winchester, Kentucky, chapter of Quilts for Kids, made it's first delivery of 17 quilts to Kentucky Children's Hospital in January, 2011. Since then, membership has increased to include dozens of members throughout central Kentucky.
By March, 2013, the total reached 500 quilts. As of December 2014, the grand total of quilts donated came to 1005! And that's not the whole story. These generous, prolific volunteers have also donated a wide variety of other items to comfort hurting children and their families, including receiving blankets, fleece throws, pillowcases, NICU sheets, baby hats, superhero capes, stuffed bears, adult hats and scarves.
Chapter Leader, Rosemary Campbell, tells us they are always looking for new members and asserts, "If you don't quilt, we will be happy to teach you!"
