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 donated 44 quilts for children at Victory Junction in March of 2022. We hope to break the record in 2023.
Quilts should be 36" x 36", 100% cotton fabric, batting, and thread; please do not use minky or metalic fabric or thread.
We have provided quilts and pillowcases to organizations for use and/or to raise funds through raffles.
We have made financial donations to Hurricane Relief, Camp Royall Scholarship Fund, and collected supplies to be donated to Haven House.
Hearts and Hands presented 5 quilts to veterans at the Sanford VFW 5631 in December 2022 and to 4 separately nominated veterans. We would like to honor our 2022 Quilt of Valor recipients:
