Each year the San Diego-area American Cancer Society hosts camps for kids battling cancer. Rosie Gonzalez organizes school kids, quilt groups, guilds, and individuals to make twin-size quilts that are donated to the campers. As they go through treatment, these special kids can hang onto their quilts as a reminder of their happy camping days.
How you can help: The group gladly accepts quilt blocks, twin or larger quilt tops, and completed new quilts. Or donate quilt fabric and/or batting. Finished quilts must be twin or larger, machine quilted, and bound for stability.
Rosie also needs “long arm quilters” who can help with machine quilting (and shipping costs can be provided, if necessary). Anyone in the San Diego area is invited to join the group’s sew-a-thon, where there are jobs for non-sewers, too.
SewCalGal will also be recognizing long arm quilters that donate time to help with the Camp Reach For The Sky program. Once a month, I’ll recognize a long arm quilter that volunteers for this program.
