Charity Quilting Committee

Washington Stars Quilt Guild members lovingly hand make items to donate to a variety of recipients in our South Sound community including, Foster Children, Providence St. Peters Family Birth Center, Thurston County Food Bank, Meals on Wheels, Baby Bank, Hospice and Safe Place.
Items include: isolette covers to protect premature babies eyes from the harsh lights, placemats to brighten the trays of Meals on Wheels participants, reusable shopping bags and Christmas stockings to be given out by the Food Bank. And a variety of quilts to chosen organizations to offer a hug in a time of need.

We accept quilts made by individuals or groups (small bees).
If you have a quilt you would like to donate,
please Contact Us.

Below is a list of the sizes that are needed for the recipients. For filling the needs of our recipients and documentation purposes it is recommended that these sizes are used (or at least 1-2” within the sizes listed).
The Guild does not mail quilts, they are hand delivered by members of the Charity Committee.

Thank you for your help.

Mark your calendars and plan to join us for all-day or any increment of time that works for your schedule. This has been a fun time in the past and we are looking forward to having you join us.
