Charity Quilts

Our guild makes quilts to donate to local charities in New York City. Our charity projects are inspired by our Mission Statement:

Our mission is to develop and promote the art of modern quilting through cooperation, education and community.

We aim to build long-term relationships with the charities we support, and we plan to do at least three charity projects per year. Check out our Photo Gallery for pictures of some of our previous projects.

If you’re a registered charity and you’d like us to donate a quilt, you can contact us at membership@nycmetromodquilters.com

If you’d like to get involved in our charity work, we’d love to have you join us! Our charity projects are open for all guild members to participate. Anyone in the guild can join our Charity Committee – and anyone in the guild can volunteer to lead a new charity project. We’re always on the lookout for fun new ideas!

Here are our planned charity projects for the 2016/17 season:

 

Kids’ Quilts for Heartshare St Vincent’s Services

Status: In Progress

Coordinator: Theresa M

The blocks have been collected, and the quilts are being assembled. We’re currently looking for volunteers to do the quilting & binding. Materials (quilt tops, batting, backing & labels) will be available at the April guild meeting. Our target is to complete ten kids’ quilts in time for our June guild meeting.

 

Quilt for the NYU Langone Military Family Clinic

Status: In Progress

Coordinator: Caroline PY

In February, we held a sewing party at Gotham Quilts to piece the quilt top. Eva LB and Caroline PY have volunteered to complete the quilt, which will be displayed in the MFC’s office in Manhattan.

 

‘Log Cabin with a Twist’ quilts for the NMIC’s Domestic Violence Program

Status: In Progress

Coordinator: Eva LB

The blocks have been collected, and two quilts are currently being assembled. The finished quilts will be shown at the May guild meeting.

 

Quilts for Kids

Status: Planned to start on June 3rd.

Coordinator: Chris E & Bernadette F

At the June guild meeting, we will introduce this project and give instructions for making the blocks. Guild members can then work on the project over the summer break.

 

Baby Quilts for Room to Grow

Status: Planned start date is TBC.

Coordinator: Eva LB

We will start this project when the guild has capacity (depending on the completion date of our other charity projects.)
