Community Quilt Patterns:

The two new patterns the Community Quilt committee has released this year are the Jelly Roll Spin and Falling Charms. PDF downloads available.

Quilting Bee:

The Canadian Quilters Association Quilting Bee is making and donating 1000 quilts to Ronald McDonald houses across Canada. We have fellow guild members participating in this event, visit the CQA website for more info.

About the Community Quilt Services:

The Community Services Committee coordinates the collection and distribution of quilts made by Guild Members that are donated for use in the Community.

The quilts are collected, catalogued and distributed to the facilities. Facilities we have donated to include:

  • St. Michael’s Health Centre
  • Extendicare
  • Woods Home
  • YWCA Harbour House
  • RCMP
  • Lethbridge Regional Police Service Victim’s Services
  • Cancer Clinic

and others chosen by the Committee and agreed upon by the Guild Executive Committee.

If you are an organization in need please contact the webmaster and we will direct you to the Community Committee.

Beads of Courage:

We have recently learned about Beads of Courage and Guild members are invited to be involved in constructing fabric bags to hold the beads. You can visit Beads of Courage for more information, if you specifically need the Quilting bag info it is here (under Aritsts Donations and “Quilters”). Rae Perry is the director of Beads of Courage for Alberta and she has asked for a Guild member to be a contact that will be given bead bag labels and transport the bags to Calgary and Fay volunteered.

Note: You can enclose a small note in the bag that gives your name and the Lethbridge Centennial Quilters guild if you wish.
