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.
