Upcoming Workshops (Listed below)

Our kit workshops are free and open to anyone who can operate their own sewing machine. So, join us as we encourage each other and quilt a touch of comfort for Utah children dealing with violent crime, major disease, and natural disasters. 

What We Do

  • Share testimonies about how these quilts are affecting Utah children and their families.

  • Cut, sew and press donated fabrics into kits or completed quilts.

  • Receive contributions

    • Before arriving, please make sure to attach and print your first name on the official Quilts for Kids Label to the back of all quilts.

    • Please bag and label your entire contribution with your first and last name so that we will know who to check off of our sign out list or make receipts out to. A plastic trash bag works great!

  • Sign-out quilt kits​​​

    • 1st priority is given to those who register to sew at the workshop.​

    • At the end of the workshop, anyone may sign-out additional kits to make at home. 

  • Sometimes we will have prize drawings or play games.

What to Bring

Free kits are signed out during the check-in process so you can take it home to finish if it does not get finished during the workshop.

  • Your sewing machine and sewing basket

  • Cotton or polyester thread in neutral colors that blend with light or dark fabrics (No monofilament or clear threads)

  • Crib sized low-loft (1/4" or less) cotton or cotton blend batting. Scraps of the same loft pieced to 45" x 60" are ok.

  • Any personal stash quilt projects you would like to finish and give to one of Utah's children through Quilts for Kids.

​​

We look forward to making your acquaintance, so say "Hi" and let us know if it is your first time with us.

Registration

Space can be very limited depending upon several factors.

  • Those not staying to sew and who are only dropping off or picking things up should not register. Just come about a half-hour late.

  • Those who wish to sew during the workshop must register to save your seat. It also provides us with emergency contact information should we have to cancel the workshop for some unforeseen reason.

  • Walk-ins are welcome provided space is available, but, priority is given first to those who register.

  • Parents need to accompany minor children who wish to participate. 

  • Your answers to our registration questions help us prepare for your needs at the workshop. Thank you for understanding.
