Service Opportunities

The guild helps the community in many ways; with placemats that go to Meals on Wheels, quilts that go to our veterans, area homeless shelters, the hospital for kids, pillow cases for the hospital, and more. The service to the community is a big part of the guild work and mission.

When donating an item, please fill out the attached Service Form. It helps to know where in the creation process the item is at.


Soldier quilts

Service quilts

Service quilts are approximately 60 x 80. These are basically the ones that we have packages of 6" squares cut and waiting for you to take a package home to sew. These quilts go various places such as the Freedom House, Red Cross, etc. Please see below for other square sizes and how many are needed to make a service quilt.

  • 6" squares (165) 11 x 15 = 60.5" x 82.5"
  • 5.5" squares (192) 12 x 16 = 60" x 80"
  • 5" squares (252) 14 x 18 = 63" x 81"
  • 4.5" squares (391) 15 x 20 = 60" x 80"
  • 4" squares (391) 17 x 23 = 59.5" x 80.5"
  • 3.5" squares (540) 20 x 27 = 60.5" x 81.5"

Comfort quilts

Quilts go to St. Vincent Hospital Pediatrics (45 x 60), Bellin Health Child Life (36 x 36 up to 60 x 80) and Brown County Social Services.

Hospice quilts

The dimensions are 36 x 36 inches, or 36 x 40 inches. These quilts work well for people in wheel chairs.

These are ongoing projects. The need is great and every quilt that we can make and donate to these worthwhile places is well worth the time spent.

Although all donations of fabric is good, we can only accept cotton fabric that is clean and is free of all odors.

We have various days throughout the year for a working bee making quilts. Watch the newsletter for sewing days. Any pattern is acceptable.

Other patterns - Use these patterns for items we have donated in the past and will continue to do when we receive them at meetings.
