Service Committee

The Service Committee organizes the making of quilts from VQG supplies, commonly referred to as “Service Quilts.” Some quilts are started from scratch and some are completed from donations of partially completed quilts. The Service Committee also manages the donation of completed quilts and other items to the Valley community. Some organizations that have an on-going need receive donations monthly, quarterly, or annually, and some receive donations on an as-needed or as-available basis. The Guild also supports various organizations by supplying quilts for their major fundraising events.

The Guild has a great stash of fabric, most of which has been accumulated as donations through the years. Fabric is available to members for selection to make Service Quilts and Fair Projects. This fabric can be used to make a quilt top for donation to Service Projects or Fair Projects.  At each meeting, the Service Cart has various projects on it which can be taken home to be worked on (kits for quilt tops, borders to be sewn on, quilts to be quilted, binding to be sewn on, etc.) and returned when that step is done.

How can you support the Service Committee?

  • Join the Committee.

  • Participate in the "Birthday Quilt" Challenge.  

  • Donate good quality fabric you no longer want/need.

  • Come to a Work Session which is held on most Membership Meeting days starting at 1:00pm.  Check the monthly newsletter for confirmation.

  • Check out a kit from the Service Cart (piecing a top, sew on borders, sew on binding, etc.)

  • Donate quilt tops you may not want to finish.​

What is the "Birthday Quilt" Challenge?

​The Service Committee has issued this challenge for each member to donate a finished quilt to the Guild in honor of their own birthday.  

  • Donate any size quilt, baby or larger to the Guild.

  • You will be entered into a drawing to win a $50 gift card at the end of the year.

  • You may enter this challenge only once per year.

  • Service fabric, backing, and/or batting may be used for making the quilt.  Items may be selected from the Service stash on Meeting days prior to 5:00pm, or on Open Sew days when Jill Jackson or Cat Thompson are in attendance. Please have available how much yardage you need. Refer to the "Fabric Etiquette" page below for more information about using Service fabric.
