OCMQG 2014 Holiday Party

This year’s holiday party was hosted at Bunnie’s home. Each year at the holiday party, we take time to sew a quilt together which will be donated to charity. We also had a Yankee Swap of handmade items. The handmade items included mini quilts, bags, aprons, and more! Our holiday parties are always fun opportunities to get to know fellow guild members better while celebrating the joy of the season. Here are pics from this year’s amazing party!

2014 Philanthropy Recap

(written by Lisa Handley, 2014 Philanthropy Chair)

Once again- I want to thank you everyone for their philanthropy efforts this year.  It was a great year!  

To recap, in March we presented over 25 quilts to Casa Teresa for those in need of a temporary home and on-going support for pregnant women who are alone.

Thanks to Janet and our members for all of your hard work over the prior 18 months to delivery such beautiful quilts to these mothers.    

From March through Oct, we worked hard to hit a goal – our goal was to have quilts ready for the holidays for those in need.  And WE DID IT! We completed 32 quilts in a very short time and 3 local organizations benefited from our efforts – Women’s Transitional Living, Inc., Interval House and Human Options.

Each of these organizations help those affected by domestic violence and sexual abuse.

I am grateful to each and everyone of you for your participation.

XOXO

Lisa
