Thank You, Pellon!

Posted by linda on June 19th, 2015


Delivering quilts to the children of Tampa General Hospital in June was a touching experience.

We were fortunate to have the President and VP of Pellon with us as well as some of their wonderful staff.

As we went from room to room we were moved to see children grab the quilts and place their faces into them like they were cuddling them....some of the children were in surgery or having treatments so quilts were placed on their beds to surprise and comfort them when they returned to their rooms.

Thank you to Pellon for donating the batting that went into many of the quilts. With you we can reach many more children with our quilts

As promised, here's a look at the recent Little Mermaids workshop at headquarters, using the QFK Little Mermaids fabric line from Northcott.

Designed by QFK's own Nancy Lacey, the pattern presented just enough of a challenge to our volunteers, who sewed with love, thinking of the delighted little girls who will receive these bright quilts.

Many thanks to our partner, Northcott, for their on-going support.  Look for "Little Mermaids" at your local quilt shop now.

Working Together

Posted by pam on June 5th, 2015

The connection between chapters and local quilt guilds is an important one, as demonstrated by our Coker Creek, TN, Chapter's affiliation with Village Quilters Guild, to which chapter leader, Donna Powers belongs.

This month, the guild will have a baby shower for Newborns In Need, which is a non-profit for women, girls and their babies.

Donna explains, "Lots of new moms do not have any medical help or the means to prepare for their newborns.  This charity provides them with the necessary items to bring the babies home.  Guild members are urged to bring gifts to donate."

Guild members were also challenged to make quilts for the Coker Creek Chapter to supplement the chapter's donation to Children's Hospital, Knoxville.

We applaud these generous ladies for helping needy moms and children!

Chapters, make sure your local guilds know about the wonderful work you do for QFK.
