Comfort Quilts is the Smithtown Stitchers community service project. Our members
make quilts in various sizes. The quilts are distributed to local area hospitals and
organizations. The project delivers approximately 400 quilts annually.

It is a Member in good standing's obligation to complete at least one Comfort Quilt
per calendar year. Please visit the Comfort Quilt table and volunteer to help.
There is always a need for people to cut fabric into squares, sew squares together
and tie quilts. There are kits of precut blocks ready to be sewn together. These
kits can be made into lap size or twin size tops. (It's your choice) They are a great
way to practice new stitches by machine or by hand, try out new threads or hone
your piecing skills.
So join in the fun, bring your machine or just volunteer to help in any way you can.
MEETING PLACE FOR COMFORT QUILTERS! All members are welcome.
Beyond the Thimble has graciously offered their classroom area as a workspace
for preparing and sewing our comfort quilt projects. The 1st Monday of every
month from 12-3PM will be reserved for all the volunteers to work on comfort
quilts. Bring your sewing machines, sewing supplies, and lots of energy to help with
this wonderful cause.

Quilt of Valor
The Smithtown High School Class of 1968 is holding their 50th reunion in July of this
year and we have agreed to make a “Quilt of Valor” to present to one of their class
Thank you to all the members that made blocks!
And thank you to the board members that volunteered their services:

This quilt was made using the Block of the Month pattern from June. If you like the
way it turned out and are thinking about making one of your own, both sets of
instructions are available here.
