Quilts for Survivors founder, Vanessa Genier, will join TQG at our first meeting of the 2022-23 year! Join us on Zoom on Monday, September 12th at 7pm to hear about Vanessa’s start on Facebook to the nation-wide effort that it is today.
Vanessa has built a great group of stitchers and encouragers on Facebook but it’s easiest to find information about how to send your blocks, tops or quilts on the Quilts for Survivors website.
In early fall, Monica Thompkins contacted some Norfolk long-term care homes to determine what items TQG could provide to benefit the residents. After a day of sewing fidget quilts in October, we are looking for lap, fidget and memory quilts.
On Saturday, November 13, from 9 am to 4 pm, we’ll be using the TQG Sit and Sew link to get together virtually to make quilts to fill this need in our community. There will be door prizes and we encourage you to drop in and take part for even part of the day!
