Some of our Charity and Outreach Opportunities
Care and Share
The first Monday of every month members are welcome to help make charity quilts at the EOE building at 348 West Pine Street (rte. 70) in Eagle River. Drop in anytime between 9 am and 2 pm. You can bring your sewing machine if you want to sew, or If you don’t want to sew, the ironing and cutting stations always need help. We also put quilt kits together out of donated fabric for members to take home and make a charity quilt. The kits range in all sizes from newborn to single bed. Below are a few of the many quilts we’ve made.
If anyone would like to donate fabric or supplies for Care and Share, you are welcome to drop the donation off at the EOE building during our Care and Share time.
Charity Quilt Donations
We donate many quilted items to charities. Please look under this category in the Charity Quilts/Community Outreach Menu.
Community Outreach Projects
We participate in the Mending Project at the Walter E. Olson Memorial Library the first Saturday of the month from 10 am – 12 pm. The public can bring articles of clothing that need anything from hemming, patching, to simply a button replaced.
In the fall, guild members assist with the School Sewing Class, a 9-week class, after school, on basic sewing skills for students, held at Eagle River Elementary School. (see our School Sewing Class page listed in the Charity Quilts/Community Outreach menu)
