We meet on the first and third Saturdays of the month for a Sew Day. At noon on the first Saturday, we break for a guild meeting.
Dates for meetings may be changed due to holidays or conflicts. Check the Calendar page for possible changes.
We gather at the McSwain Agricultural Center at 2420 Tramway Road, Sanford, NC.
As a non-profit organization, community service is part of our undertakings. We have provided quilts and pillowcases to organizations for use and/or to raise funds through raffles.
In 2019 we donated 14 quilts to the Carolina Trace Fire Department; 70 pillowcases to Foster Care, Lee County; 43 pillowcases and 9 quilts to Haven House; 40 pillowcases and 3 quilts to Ronald McDonald House, Chapel Hill; 1 quilt to More Life, Veterans.org; 2 quilts to CTCC Women's Club; 8 quilts to special needs, Moore County; and 8 quilts to VFW Sanford.
We have made financial donations to Hurricane Relief, Camp Royall Scholarship Fund, and collected supplies to be donated to Haven House.
Guild members are encouraged to make NICU quilts in 2021. Quilts should be 36" x 36", 100% cotton fabric, batting, and thread; please do not use minky or metalic fabric or thread.
Two Quilts of Valor were given at the American Legion in Broadway, March 8, 2021. Pictured above:
Robert (Bob) Carter, an Air Force veteran who served from 1959 - 1964.
James Slade, above, is an Army veteran who served three tours in Viet Nam from 1968 - 1983. He was awarded the Bronze Star twice.
Hearts and Hands presented 4 quilts to veterans at the Sanford VFW 5631 in December 2020. We would like to honor our 2020 Quilt of Valor recipients, pictured below:
