  • Share testimonies about how these quilts are affecting Utah children and their families.
  • Sign-out kits to be made at home
  • Collect donated quilts made from personal fabric stashes or from kits
  • Sometimes we even play simple games or have prize drawings

Who Should Register:

  • For those who only wish to drop off kits, quilts and donations, registration is not required.
  • For those who wish to sew during the workshop, registration saves your seat, provides us with emergency cancellation contact information, and speeds up the check-in process.
  • Walk-ins are welcome provided space is available.

  1. Your sewing machine and sewing basket
  2. Cotton or polyester thread in neutral colors that blend with light or dark fabrics (No monofilament or clear threads)
