Stitching for Good–2/6/2015

Formerly known as “Quilting For Good” our group of stitchers are now known as “Stitching For Good.”  Meeting on the First Friday of the Month (during September – June) we still make quilts for charity, but we have expanded to also sew things like pillowcases, placemats, bags and other items for hospitals and non-profit organizations. There are kits available or participants bring their own projects.

Yesterday the room was a buzz of activity.

Several ladies worked on Bead Bags of Courage for children facing serious illness.

See more information about this cause Here.

(Of course, a bit of visiting occurs over the ironing board!)

We have some very talented ladies.  Frequently we’ll have a show and tell and get to see what other projects are being made. Look at this blue ribbon as well as a special award for her Lace Bobbin work.

Not all work is done at G-Street.  Many ladies will bring in quilts, bags, pillowcases, placemats and other items which will be donated to various groups.  Here is a Quilt and a Pet Bed.

Thank you to G Street Fabrics, in Rockville, MD, for supporting these charity quilting/sewing days, and to all of the talented ladies that come and spend the day sewing for others.

Quilters are wonderful, caring, creative people.  It may ‘only be just’ a bag, a pillowcase or a quilt, but to someone it will be a hug and a touch of love from a stranger.  I am so pleased to be part of this group that shares the journey through their many talents. 

 

Happy Stitching!
