The caring quilters of ESQ gladly share their time and talents with many community organizations. Over the years we have made Dresses for Africa, pillowcases for Sophia Way and Children's Hospital, lap quilts for patients at Overlake Hospital, and patriotic quilts for veterans through Quilts of Valor. We also provide quilts for display at area retirement homes. Fabric and batting donations for our outreach programs are always gratefully accepted.
This year our project focus will be on the charitable organizations listed below. *** See pictures of items made here! *** Stay & Sew workshops may be scheduled throughout the year to work on these projects and to further develop friendships among our members.
