Comfort Quilt Program
Members of the Strawberry Patchers have been making comfort quilts for many years. Quilts are given to community or family members who are ill or in need of comfort during a difficult time. And in some cases, a happy time. Quilts are also provided to the local organizations, and for special events where fundraisers are being held for a specific cause or person(s).
Some comfort quilts are sold at our Annual Quilt Show, in June, in our Country Store Boutique. We set up our Country Store Boutique at the Strawberry Festival, in June, and The Fall Festival, in October. Proceeds from the Country Store sales and the sale of some Comfort Quilts help purchase fabrics and batting needed to make comfort quilts and other items that are donated to local community organizations.
Many members and non-members as well donate their time and materials to help make comfort quilts. Local long-arm machine quilters donate their time to quilt the quilts for the group.
The money raised from selling comfort quilts, 'opportunity' raffle items, and other handcrafted articles is used for the group's Charitable Funding Program. Beneficiaries of the Strawberry Patchers' charitable funding program include local non-profit organizations, libraries, and schools in the Pine-Strawberry-Payson area.
Would you like to help support the Strawberry Patchers Comfort Quilts Program? Your donation of any amount is truly appreciated. Your donation helps the group purchase fabrics and batting needed to make and complete the comfort quilts.
Please, contact Kris Lovetro - 602-390-2046, with any questions you may have pertaining to this program, or donations of fabric, sewing items or money.
The Strawberry Patchers is a non-profit organization affiliated with the Arizona Quilters Guild.
