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.
