Charity Quilts

Current Charity Projects

Members who'd like to donate a quilt bring it to a monthly meeting or contact Lesley R or Julie F.  See below for details on what organizations we're currently donating to and what they are looking for!

Organization: Sleep in Heavenly Peace
What they do: Organization builds beds for New Hampshire kids who are without beds. 
What they need: Nothing bigger than a twin. Twin size is best, but they welcome lap/throw sizes as well. 

Organization: Hugs of Love

Organization: Merrimack Hospice
What they Need: Quilts for Hospice patients.  They suggest 54 X 70, but probably any size throw / lap works.  They also request “soothing colors” but that can cover a wide range.

We occasionally get specific requests for quilts for people in special circumstances and are usually readily able to meet the need.
