Our mission is to be a forum to exchange ideas and to provide information and education regarding quilting.
In addition quilts are donated to charitable organizations whose activities reflect the interests of the members.
a unique way to help the valiant people of Ukraine
Cindy Livingston, a quilter from Saranac, with Ukrainian heritage gave a brief history of the Baptist Ukrainian Catholic Parish in Detroit at a Thursday afternoon gathering. We had 51 quilts spread on tables surrounding the Wiltse Center meeting room. When organizing the area I found another quilt that needed binding … brings the total to 52. We had added the following label on back of all:
“Quilt is a welcoming gift made by ladies
of the United Methodist Church of the
Dunes or the Lighthouse Quilters Guild
from Grand Haven, Michigan.”
Betty will accompany Cindy in the next couple weeks to help deliver these to the children. We will have more information after we deliver the quilts with pictures to show the complete the project.
Added to Programs, Events, Workshops page is a page with information about PALS and Big Red Quilt Guilds.
