Community Quilts (DDCQP)
Since COVID guidelines prohibit large gatherings, our Drop-In days have been cancelled indefinitely. If this changes we will certainly let you know.
Consequently, our drop-off venue for DDCQP items is now Carolyn Weil's home. Bay Quilts and New Pieces, fabric stores where you could drop off finished Community Quilts or kits, are also closed. At Carolyn's you may drop off finished kits or quilts, pick up kits to sew or pinned quilts for machine quilting, or get batting to finish a Community Quilt that you have made. She will also accept fabric donations and face masks. Please email Carolyn before you go to her home.
EBHQ members are generous by nature and have a long history of supporting our community at large. The Deanna Davis Community Quilt Project (DDCQP) donates over 1,000 quilts a year to local children and youth organizations, shelters and hospitals.
DDQCP volunteers have stitched and distributed all sizes of quilts to those in need of support and comfort: tiny quilts for preemies, small quilts for babies and children, medium sizes for tweens, and larger quilts for teens aging out of foster care and for families in need of disaster relief. It's an accomplishment we all should be very proud of. Thank you ALL for making it possible. WE COULDN'T DO IT WITHOUT YOU!
