October 2022 Update
When you announce a new community service project (placemats for Meals on Wheels) and share the goal is quantity 90, but you receive over 120 at the subsequent guild meeting, you know you have an awesome and generous group of sewers! Pam Overton delivered the first 90 and is reaching out to other South Bay Meals on Wheels teams to see if they also have interest and what quantities they need. Here are a few of the wonderful donations received to date.
Arlene Zobrist presented another quilt made by Pam Overton for the USS California sailors.
August 2022 Update
SBQG Disaster Relief is collecting 16-patch blue and yellow checkerboard blocks (12.5" raw edge) to make quilts for Ukraine refugees. Please see the information sheet titled "16-Patch Quilt Block for Ukraine" on the Disaster Response page. Return completed blocks to Nadine Kirk (call or email at email@example.com) with any questions.
Ten quilts were dropped off at the Hello Cotton booth at the Long Beach International Quilt Show for them to take to Poland for Ukraine refugee children and families as a part of their "Wrap Ukraine with Quilts" initiative.
