A Quilted Gift

Throughout the year, A Quilted Gift committee has various activities to support our local charities.  

On Saturday, March 18, 2017, the Amoskeag Quilters' Guild and interested local sewers of all abilities will be gathering to make pillowcases for kids to be delivered to local area hospitals.  

Sewing enthusiasts are encouraged to stop by for just a few hours or the whole day (9am to 4pm) to join in the fun of making pillowcases with friends who share a common bond. If you don't have a portable sewing machine, come along anyway. We will have spare machines available and plenty of ironing boards set up for the pressing of seams. Instructions and sewing support will also be provided.

For the workshop, participants should bring their own sewing machine (if available), appropriate cords and foot peddle, thread, extra machine needles, scissors, and other necessary sewing accessories. Be sure to bring a bag lunch to keep you energized - coffee, water, and sweet treats will be provided.

The venue is handicap accessible, and there is plenty of parking available. In the event of inclement weather, tune in to WMUR or "like" us on Facebook.  For more information, email casesforkids@AmoskeagQG.org.

For 2015-16, 1,903 cases were turned completed by the Guild. Since the program inception in 2012, we have donated 5,800 cases to CHaD at Dartmouth-Hitchcock, Elliot Hospital Pediatric Unit, Barbara Bush Children's Hospital, Concord Hospital Pediatric Unit, and Joni & Friends.

NE Quilt Museum

We are proud to sponsor the New England Quilt Museum in Lowell, MA. Our guild has a special fund drive in March and donates the proceeds towards the cause of supporting and maintaining a regional area resource that is the museum.

Raffle Quilt

One of the reasons members join the Amoskeag Quilters Guild is to be able to provide a service to the community in which we all live. And what is of mutual interest to the guild members? Making quilts! One method we use to give back to the community is to create a quilt as a guild and then raffle it with the entire proceeds going to our designated charity. Every other membership year, the guild votes upon which charity will be the recipient of our group efforts and then creates a quilt and spends a year in efforts to raffle it off.
