Community Quilts (DDCQP)
Quilt donations for fire survivors needed!
The 2020 fire season has barely begun and already the need is great to help survivors of this year's disasters. DDCQP is putting out this call for quilts of every size to pass on to groups that will distribute them. Tween size ~ 50" by 60" are the most needed, but any size will be gratefully accepted.
Our drop-off venues for DDCQP donations are Carolyn Weil's home and New Pieces, where you can also drop off finished Community Quilts or tops and small fabric donations. At Carolyn's you may drop off finished kits or quilts, pick up kits to sew or pinned quilts for machine quilting, or get batting to finish a Community Quilt that you have made. She will also accept large fabric donations and face masks. Please email Carolyn before you go to her home.
EBHQ members are generous by nature and have a long history of supporting our community at large. The Deanna Davis Community Quilt Project (DDCQP) donates over 1,000 quilts a year to local children and youth organizations, shelters and hospitals.
DDQCP volunteers have stitched and distributed all sizes of quilts to those in need of support and comfort: tiny quilts for preemies, small quilts for babies and children, medium sizes for tweens, and larger quilts for teens aging out of foster care and for families in need of disaster relief. It's an accomplishment we all should be very proud of. Thank you ALL for making it possible. WE COULDN'T DO IT WITHOUT YOU!
