Once again our area has been affected by a catastrophic wildfire. The Zogg Fire burned more than 85 homes in the towns of Igo and Ono. Our guild is coordinating a quilt drive to make quilts for the residents w ho lost homes. Cris Hartman and Rose Leonard are co- chairing the Philanthropic Committee for this cause. We have set up an email address for all correspondence related to the Zogg Fire Quilt Drive. It is qsr.wecarequilts@gmail.com . If you know someone affected by the fire, please email us with their information (or have them contact us directly). If you are willing to make quilts, piece quilt tops, piece backings, do the actual quilting, or binding, please let us know so we can call on your super powers to h elp us! Quilt kits are available through President Louise Wilson or at The Sewing Room and we will make more as needed. Quilts can be dropped off at Hokema’s, The Sewing Room, Sew Simple, or Blue Iris. We hope to have our first quilt giveaway in early December. If you have finished quilts to send, or have a ny questions, please contact the coordinators through the email address, or Cris at (530) 524-2328 and Rose at (530) 227-6444
Philanthropic Committee
Our guild has an active philanthropic committee composed of three quilters. But, actually, this part of the guild is composed of all of our members. We are a team of about 250 busy quilters ready and willing to serve others through the quilting talents that we have. Some of our members like to piece a quilt top, some like to quilt the three layers together, some like to do the binding and some like to do the whole quilt from start to finish. Each year we have a goal of completing and donating 200 quilts. We donate quilts to One Safe Place (Women's refuge), Child Protective Services, Mercy Hospital Pediatrics and Mercy Cancer Center. In the past we have donated to the Veteran's Home and to fire victims in our local area who have lost everything. The quilts that we make for these charities are a gift of warmth, love, caring and security to the recipients of the quilts. The yearly Sew-In is one of our Spring guild meetings which is a fun opportunity to quilt together for these local charities.
Pet Beds
Although it isn't an official group, many guild members are involved in making pet beds using left over fabric and batting scraps. The completed beds are donated to various animal shelters and pet adoption agencies and businesses, as well as the Bella Vista Animal Sanctuary. The beds are made in a variety of sizes to provide comfort from the smallest kitten to the largest dogs. This is our way of repurposing the scraps and keeping them out of the landfills. Our guild has donated over 800 beds to our furry friends.
Comfort Bags
Another way our guild members supports our local community is by making fabric bags that are then filled with a variety of toiletry items for women, men and children who come to One SAFE Place in Redding. Formerly known as Shasta Women's Refuge and Family Justice Center, One SAFE Place is an organization that is devoted to helping individuals of domestic and sexual abuse throughout Shasta County. The comfort bags are simple but colorful fabric drawstring bags that are filled with the small necessities of life - soap, washcloths, shampoo, lotion, toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, deodorant, Kleenex, hairbrush, combs, disposable razor and feminine products. All items for the bags are donated by our generous members. When available, we include nail products and tools, socks and hair bands. We even include a couple of pieces of candy to sweeten their day and let them know that someone does care.
