We are an industrious group! I thought it important to let you know what we collected at our Tuesday guild meeting toward Community Outreach:
– 41 stockings, 6 gift sacks and 2 ornaments…we now have 76 stockings in total
– 24 completed Quilts of Comfort
– 16 quilt tops
– 7 quilts for binding
– 2 coin strips
– 100+ DFGs liners, 44 bags, 16 panties, 1 ziploc box and toiletries
Thank you very much for your generosity…in skill, resources and time! 😆👍🏼😆🎉
A reminder from Donna about DFGs bags…
Anyone who has taken a Days for Girls bag kit – please be careful sewing the side seams. Because they were cut from the old dimensions, the side seams need to be sewn with a 1/4″ seam – so that the bags finish at minimum 10 1/2″ wide. This is now the minimum size required. If the bags have turned out smaller, Days for Girls still accept them, but will set them aside for use in shelters, as cosmetic bags, etc.
Kits going forward will be cut at the new dimensions, so shouldn’t be a problem. Thanks to everyone who’s worked on this project !
Looking forward to our December presentations of our combined efforts.
