Baton Rouge Delivery

Posted by pam on November 25th, 2014


Sharon Hicks, our Baton Rouge Chapter Leader, reports that they recently delivered 27 quilts to Our Lady of the Lake Hospital, and were able to personally give quilts to 11 children in PICU and Hematology Oncology. 





 Most QFK Chapters are not so fortunate to be able to put the quilts into the hands of the children, so Sharon makes sure she sends photos to remind us that the need for comfort quilts is always there.

Meeting shop owners is always a priority as well such as  SEW TOGETHER QUILT SHOP owner Maryann Rossetti, pictured with Pat Wolf and Linda.  The Tewksbury MA Chapter certainly appreciates the space for workshops.



Linda was happy to welcome Pellon's Andy Reid to booth 1203 and to thank him for Pellon's support of QFK.

 And a special thank you to Barb Lucas of our San Antonio chapter for helping out in the booth!barb

If you are one of the lucky ones visiting  the International Quilt Market and Quilt Festival October 25th through November 2nd in Houston, be sure and stop by the Quilts for Kids booth, #1203, and meet founding president, Linda Arye, as well as some  of our volunteers who support us and run our chapters all across the country. 


Linda would LOVE to thank you personally for the great work you do by making the quilts that turn children’s tears to smiles and introduce you to some of our newest fabric.  We'll even have kits and yardage for sale so that you can re-create the quilts hanging in the booth.

One of our newer chapters in Indiana has posted some impressive numbers in the two short years they have been in existence.  By the end of the year, they will have donated 2000 quilts to Peyton Manning Children's Hospital and community child protective organizations.


Recently, Chapter Leader Cathy Case, visited a local news program to publicize the chapter's upcoming fund-raiser on October 25 and to spark interest in the 90-member chapter, asking for donations and inviting others to join.


Thank you, Cathy, for spreading the word in your very well-spoken interview!
