The Kemptville office of Family and Children’s Services of Lanark, Leeds and Grenville held a thank-you tea for the Kemptville Quilters Guild on Friday December 8 to thank them for donating quilts to give out to families in the community.
The Guild has four volunteers who put together kits using donated fabric, which the members take to create quilts for donation. They also have a budget allocated for outreach that helps supply extra materials like batting to help complete the project. “We have 66 members in our group and many of them donate quilts and their time,” says Guild President Carmen Pincott. “Some ladies just donate totally, using their own materials without taking kits.”.
The Guild has donated hundreds of quilts to Family and Children’s Services since they first became involved with the organization in 2005.
