Children's Hospital donation March 13, 2018

March 13, 2018

4 of our ladies drove to Children's Hospital in Cincinnati to make a donation of 40 lap quilts, 46 gowns, and 18 pairs of shorts .  So glad that we finally were able to make our donations.  This is just one of the donations that the Quilt Batts make during the year.  When asked where we get our material, I reply that material is purchase with money collected at quilt show.  It is a circle of life!  We get money, buy fabric, cut and sew items, then repeat the whole process over again.  Such a great group of ladies.

We had our February meeting this evening at United Methodist Church in Brookville.  One of things that was discussed were how many quilts that our group donated in 2016 and groups that recieved quilts.  Childrens Hospital 87 quilts, Franklin County Fair Baby show 16 quilts, Shiners Hospital 30 quilts, Need families through churches 77 quilts, Nursing Home 15 quilts.  Also, Childrens Hospital recieved 34 gowns, 28 shorts, 28 knitted caps, 39 spools of thread, 2 yards elastic, and 40 scarves.  It was a busy year but we hope to top this in 2017.  Thank you goes to a great group of ladies who sew, knit, crochet so we are able to give to others.  If you want to join our group please come March 16th at United Methodist Church, 150 East 8th St, Brookville.  It isn't all work as we are planning some fun road trips to different quilt shows and shops.
