20th Annual Share the Warmth -
Quilts That Make a Difference, October 12th to Nov 10th .
This annual is usually held the last weekend of September for a three day period, but like a lot of things, COVID has really changed the way we have to do things, especially when it comes to hosting events. The one thing that hasn't changed, however, is the need in our community to continue to help those in need.
What was once an energetic 3 day event that brought customers and community members together to volunteer their time & skills to make simple quilts for local area shelters has had to take a new direction. And while we can no longer gather, we can still come together to share the warmth this winter with those who need it most. Our goal is to get as many community members as we can to volunteer their time and skills to make simple quilts for local area shelters & organizations in need. No sewing experience is required, just your time.
The best part: when someone gets their quilt, they will know it was made by someone in their local community. Small acts of kindness like this make all the difference - To be part of this inspiring event, please stop into your local store to pick up your backing and batting at no charge - All we ask is that you bring back your finished quilt within 2 weeks of picking up supplies. You can pick up as many kits as you need during this time, but we do have a limit of one kit per volunteer at a time, so be sure to pick one up every time you drop one off!
For beginners, we have an easy instruction sheet to help you cut, piece, layer, flip and tie.
Donations of finished quilts and quilt tops will also be gratefully accepted.
While this event is hosted by Atlantic Fabrics, the real heroes are the local champions in the communities we serve, who work tirelessly throughout the year to ensure we finish as many quilts as we can for those who need them the most!
Thanks to everyone in advance for your support this year and always.
