Blankets for Bastrop Outreach

Recently, our guild treasurer, Liz, was personally effected by the Bastrop wildfires when her parents were forced to evacuate the area. (Bastrop is roughly an hour outside of San Antonio) She reached out to our guild to help with completing quilts tops and getting them quilted to donate to the New Braunfels chapter of Project Linus which was collecting quilts for the Bastrop shelters. Another member of our guild, Danielle, who has a long arm quilting machine, immediately organized a quilting day at her home through e-mail and our Facebook page. (see her post about it here) The result (so far) was these amazing quilts being finished and ready to donate! Some were collected from the Project Linus group, tops and backs for them to quilt, the others were donated from the chapter members. Danielle has planned another Blankets for Bastrop quilting day on Tuesday September 20th. It's truly satisfying to know that our group can organize so quickly and be able to help in such a tangible way.

You can also drop off quilt tops (with backings please), donated batting, or finished crib or baby quilts to any of the following shops:

Crafty Girls Workshop
1100 Broadway
