Our Community Service Program supports our Lowcountry community by making charity quilts which are donated to local nonprofit organizations who provide relief to the poor, the distressed, the underprivileged, the elderly and veterans or advocate for families suffering from domestic violence, rape or child abuse, such as Bluffton Self Help, Hopeful Horizons, CAPA and Penn Center.   

2022 Community Service in Review

It was a busy year for the Guild with our first quilt festival since the pandemic closed us down, but our members continued to create quilts for distribution to those in our community who were in need of the comfort of a warm, cozy quilt. We held a number of workshops at the Hargray Community Room where volunteers helped cut backings and batting in order to prepare "sandwiches" that could be picked up at the Guild meetings each month. These were taken home to be quilted, giving members a chance to practice and show off their machine-quilting skills! We also had intrepid members (in particular Marilyn Zeleznik - kudos to her!) who created quilts from start to finish and delivered them to the chair. These and all the return sandwiches were then forwarded to Cynthia Joyner who attached our guild label to each one. We had a total of 164 quilts to distribute this season. The recipients for 2022 are the Broad Creek Assisted Living Center, The Children's Center, Project Linus, Meals on Wheels of Bluffton and HHI, the Pregnancy Center of HHI, Hilton Head Heroes, Walter Reed Military Hospital and the Sandalwood Ministry. These various entities serve such a wide variety of clients that we need quilts of all themes This allows us to use all the fun fabrics that we so love to collect, so we can clear our stashes in order to make room for new ones! Please plan to join us for workshops in 2023. We have a new location - the Island Lutheran Church. Dates are to be determined, so please watch the newsletter to details.

     Our Outreach Program works with local organizations who provide services to seniors, schools and veterans.  We provide wheelchair bags, memory mats and lap quilts to veterans and retirement communities, and offer workshops for local schools. 


Member Margie Macready, who is a district representative for the Quilts of Valor Foundation, along with Lisa Jacobsen and Ginger Michael attended a luncheon October 15 where four quilts were presented to SSG Edward Jenkins, Sgt Carlos Ortiz-Mendoza, SPC Alex Nicolas, and SSG Christopher Witcig. They are all active-duty members of the 82nd Airborne Division currently stationed at Fort Bragg, NC and were being hosted that weekend by the 82nd Airborne Veterans group headed by Bill Eberle, who we got to meet at the September Guild meeting.They must have liked us--we've been invited back for the October 21, 2023 meeting. We like them too--already have four more quilts ready to go.

Thank you to all the Guild members who made red, white and blue squares, finished tops, quilted the quilts and made a quilt.
