The PPQG Community Outreach program is one of the most active in the guild. Our guild members supply handmade items and quilts donated to several charitable organizations in Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas (see current list below).
The Committee often puts together very simple kits for members to pick up, make, and return at the next meeting. The quilts, which are made individually by members, are brought to monthly PPQG meetings and turned in at the Community Outreach table for eventual distribution around the region.
Please join us for our sew workdays! Even if you don't have a machine with you, your time is greatly appreciated and there will be a job for you.
When: Second and Fourth Tuesday of every month, 9:00am to 3:00pm. You are welcome to come and go according to your own schedule.
Where: Firestation 20 (near corner of Dublin and Rangewood) Community Room.
