Thank you for visiting our website. Through sew days and a biennial quilt show featuring community service activities, we work to create a community of giving. Our sponsored activities allow productive participation by individuals one day, one quilt at a time. Our craft offers us much beyond a quilt at the end of the process.
                        So come join us for a sew day, or visit us at our next show in 2019.

Sew Blue Day

Kit Makers

The most recent community sew day sponsored by The Giving Quilt (TGQ), held on October 7th, benefited the Blue Line Kids (BLK) HALOS  program, part of the National Alliance for Law Enforcement Support (NALES).  The BLK HALOS program is dedicated to providing a quilt of comfort to the minor children of officers who have fallen in the line of duty.   

Thirty-four completed quilts were shipped to NALES on December 7, just in time for Christmas. Thank you to all the volunteers that made this possible.
