We do charity projects for Linus project and Meals on Wheels. Our members do piecing and appliqué and both machine and hand quilting.

We have a show every two years and our 2009 raffle quilt was accepted at the Paducah show!

Quilts repurposed into stuffed animals
by: Heather

Hi!
I have a quilt that was gifted to my husband and I when we were married. While we are incredibly appreciative of the time and talent that went into the creation of the quilt, it simply is not our style. I would like to have the quilt repurposed into a stuffed bear, dog, and donkey for our first child but decidedly lack the skills to do so myself. Is there anyone in your group who would be interested taking on such a project? I.live in Chevy Chase, so I would really be able to drop off the quilt itself and pickup the final product without hassle. If anyone in this group is interested, please email me at hlawler@gmail.com or call me at 202.821.3182 so we can discuss details and payment arrangements.

Thanks so much!

Quilting frame
by: Anonymous

I have my grandmother's very large wooden quilting frame. (She was born in 1898.) Do you have any suggestions of who might want it. I would be happy to donate it to a good cause. Ideas? Thank you

can you use linen/wool/cotton bits?
by: Elspeth Payne

I am cleaning out my fabric stash, mostly linen with some wool and cotton. Can you use fabric? What size minimum? I live in Silver Spring, so it'd be easy for me to drop some off if I have anything you can use.

Please reply to Elspeth@elspethpayne.com. Thank you.

My grandmother and mothers quilt
by: barbara

My mother passed in May and while cleaning i found a quilt she and her mother started in 1942 or 43. My mother was 84 when she passed and had Alzheimers - my father is still living at 92 and is having a very hard time. I would love to get this quilt finished to lay across her bed. He is legally blind but would know that it was there. Please let me know if you know of anyone that would be able to assist me. Thanking you in advance,

wonderful Grace Quilting Frame no longer in use...
by: Gail

Any thoughts of who might appreciate a Grace Z44 queen size frame (simple assembly required - instructions included). I no longer have room for it in my home. A new one is selling for somewhere upwards of $800, I was hoping for half that, or donating it to a group of folks who are working on non-for-profit projects. Any thoughts?

Thank you and a wonderful start to 2014!

Author Quilter, Storyteller Historian
by: Kathleen Lindsey

Hello, My name is Kathleen Lindsey from NJ. I'm not sure but I may have done a quilt presentation with my sisters some years ago. Our group was called, Seven Quilts For Seven Sisters. We no longer present our theatrical play together but I continue to share my theatrical talents with others. I will be in Maryland, preforming at the Handsell House for the Nanticoke Jamboree, October 5, 2013. If you are interested in having me come and do a performance while in the area, please contact me and visit my website at katlindsey7@gmail.com or 856-881-6937.
Hoping to share with you.
