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.
