Chilliwack Quilters’ Guild donates 135 quilts

Out of 171 quilts created by the Guild, most were given away as part of the We Care program

The Chilliwack Quilters’ Guild completed 171 quilts in 2017-18 and donated 135 of them as part of its ‘We Care’ program.

They cut, assemble, and sew the beautiful quilts all year long and then deliver them to charities and groups in Chilliwack, and Hope.

This year the We Care committee donated its painstaking work to Chilliwack Community Services Better Beginnings Program (20 quilts), Sto:lo Nation Infant Development Program (16 quilts), Xolhemet Society Second Stage Housing (20 quilts), Hope and Area Transition Society (20 quilts), and the Chilliwack Hospice Society (23 quilts).

Guild members who create one or two quilts per year for We Care get the batting and backing supplied by the Guild, while they supply the fabric for the quilt tops.

The guild also accepts donations of good quality cotton fabrics for their We Care and Hospice quilts at guild meetings, or by emailing to arrange for a member to pick up the fabric donation.

The Guild meets every third Tuesday of the month from September to June at The Mount Cheam Lions Club Hall, 45580 Spadina Ave.
