Community Outreach is an important part of the Sierra Gold Quilters Guild.
As part of our Community Outreach, Sierra Gold Quilters Guild members make lap size or larger quilts for various agencies within Amador County. Over half of our members participate in making at least one of these quilts each year. These quilts are created from our large stash of donated fabric and/or the quilters’ own fabrics. Batting is purchased or donated to complete each quilt.
In 2016 we donated 68 quilts.
Members also sewed 609 Chemo Caps for distribution to cancer patients in Amador and other hospitals and clinics.
In 2016 we also donated 82 Clothing Protectors and 31 Christmas Stockings.
We also donate animal beds.
We also collect donations for the Interfaith Food Bank at the monthly meetings. In this time of need in our community, our donations make a difference.
