    The quilt guild that I am involved in (though I work so can't make any workshops or anything extra, and I volunteer for MOPS so this was the first meeting I've made since July) has a "Give Away" to various local charities twice a year. One in December and one in June.
    I usually contribute a couple of quilts each time. Though since this was the first meeting that I was able to attend this fall, I did not get any turned in.
    Anyway, we gave away over 300 quilts to about 10 different "Charities" There were also many, many baby bib, burp cloths and crocheted and knitted (tiny) baby hats and pillowcases.
    I am go glad to be a part of such a giving and caring guild. It was wonderful to see all the quilts that were going out the door. They have a "Parade of quilts" throughout the room so we could all see them.
    I makes me really want to whip up some more quilts to donate for the June give away.

    That is good. I was talking to a friend today that I had given fabric for his guild's charity quilts. He told me they have had many discussions about what to do with the fabric since they had already made two quilts for charity this year........

    Isn't it a gratifying feeling to know that you can make a big difference in the world, while doing something you love to do!

    So..... does that mean that they can't donate any more......
    They could use it to make a quilt and donate for next year, since that isn't very far off!!!
