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.

Thirty four attendees participated in the community sew day held on February 10, 2018. They came from far and wide; from Biloxi, Slidell, Thibodaux, Church Point, Opelousas, and the Greater Baton Rouge area. Five quilt tops, similar to that on the left, were completed that day with more in the works. What a wonderful day was had with new friends and old!

The quilts will be awarded to local service members and veterans through the Quilts of Valor program. Visit www.QOVF.org for more information about this national non-profit organization.
