Comfort Quilts

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.

The guild is also distributing quilts for babies.  Neonatal quilts should
measure 30"x30".  These quilts
must be quilted - they cannot be tied.

So join in the fun, bring your machine or just volunteer to help in any way you
can.
