Guild members meet each month on the 4th Wednesday (except July & August) at the Kingston Elks Lodge 550 at 143 Hurley Avenue in Kingston, NY from 9 AM to !2 noon to make twin-size and child-size quilts for a local shelter on the Wednesday AFTER the regular meeting.
When planning your quilts for the shelter think children. Please use batting and either tie or machine quilt. And if you want, please put a read heart on it.
For the nursing homes: please plan for an adult, both male and female. NO batting, NO heart!!! Just a top and a backing of light weight corduroy or flannel. The size should be about 36″ – 38″ wide and about 48″ long. Not too wide because they can get caught in the wheelchair wheels.
We also make wheelchair pockets and walker pockets for local nursing homes. All guild members are encouraged to attend the meetings and help make these items.
If you cannot attend these meetings, you can bring your quilts and other items to a guild meeting, or make arrangements with Anita Rowell, our Community Quilts chairperson, to meet with her.
