Stitches for Kids

Tatyanna, from Olive Crest accepted 30 quilts from Stitches for Kids.  The group has been very busy.  They even made the table topper Tatyanna is holding for Olive Crest's office manager, Angela Allen.  The table topper and quilt on the right were made from a donation of fabrics from Joy Rasmussen (Angela's mother). Joy was a CVQG guild member.

Surgical Caps Project

Marcia Ulrich has delivered over 800 surgical caps to Linda Evans of Desert Regional/JFK Hospital.  We are about 200 caps to complete our goal of 1,000 surgical caps made by the guild members for Western Regional Hospital. This project has been such a success.  But we need to bring it to a close.


We are still meeting at Monica's quilt shop on THURSDAYS 10-11am until Thursday, April 1 to accept charity quilts and surgical caps and give out kits. Thank you all. Don't forget to wear your masks.  Any questions, just contact Marcia Ulrich at philanthropy1@cvquiltguild.org

If you or any guild member you know have won a prize at a recent quilt show, we would love to acknowledge your accomplishment.  Please send an email with a photo and details to info@cvquiltguild.org
