Sewing quilts for charity is an important focus for the Crazy Quilters Guild. Members can participate in many ways.
Bring all completed quilts, completed tops and quilts to be bound to the monthly meeting.
Charity quilts are given to local groups including:
The Wisconsin Wood Workers Guild makes doll cradles to be given as Christmas gifts to children in shelters around southeastern Wisconsin. The Crazy Quilters supply them with 25 sets of quilts, cradle pads, pillows and dolls (baby dolls to fi t 13” cradle). Each Fall the guild learns if the Wood Workers need the guilds help.
Do you have leftover fabric, jelly rolls or other cuts of fabric? You can donate materials to the members of the Charity Committee.
The Endowment Committee’s focus is on supporting the community. In addition to presenting scholarship money to students, the Endowment Committee supports local organizations with quilts for their fund raisers.
Members gather each month to hangout and work on their projects. These are open sew opportunities. It is a great way to get help on a project. There will always be someone there that can answer your questions. If you are new to quilting, this is your perfect opportunity to learn the tips and tricks of experts.
Members interested in machine embroidery meet monthly (except July and December). Today there are a lot of resources available for machine embroidery. This group is a great place to learn about new patterns and designers.
Members interested in wool applique and embroidery meet monthly January - October. This group is a great way to learn the ins and outs of wool applique and embroidery.
Sewing and quilting was once something that was done by hand. Today there are lots of machines for different types of sewing and quilting. This group meets monthly to sit and sew by hand. And talk of course!!
