I was lucky enough to attend a volunteer event at Scrap and Sew, in Lutz, FL this past weekend. This was a whirlwind event from 6:00-midnight (way past my usual bedtime!) and the response was great.
The recipients of the quilts will be kids from the
, a March of Dimes facility (the Easter Seals people). Each sponsored child receives gifts per his (her) wish list and a quilt made by the volunteers. Murray Child Development Center
serves children from 6 weeks to 6 years old. They provide educational, childcare, therapeutic and family support services to children of all abilities and their families. Many of the children have special needs and/or disabilities. The center cares for children with conditions such as spina bifida, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, birth defects and/or developmental delays. Physical, speech and occupational therapy are provided on an individual basis. Murray Center
These are a few photos of some of the group as we watched a short March of Dimes video plus several of the quilts in process and some of the finished quilts stacked up.
I worked on my Monsters fabric quilt at the event, but had to bring it home to finish the binding. I’ll take it back in next week.
I also donated this Ohio Stars quilt that I had finished earlier:
I also have fabric for one more quilt for them ... I should finish it next week also.
It was a fun event. Oh, and did I mention we had pizza and cookies? Yeah, a good time was had by all …
