The holidays are here and winter is headed our way. What better time to stay warm and dry and keep those sewing machines humming along. We love seeing all the amazing quilts that you all are making. Here is the latest news from your Comfort Quilt committee.
Belknap County Nursing Home: We have resumed distribution to the Belknap County Nursing Home. Comfort quilts are matched to each resident by size and color. The nursing home has requested that 30% be lap quilts and the rest bed sized quilts. The sizes requested are as follows:
Lap Quilt: 40 x 50
Small Bed Quilt: 48 x 60
Large Bed Quilt: 52 x 72
Currently, we have over 60 completed bed sized Comfort Quilts on hand, ready for distribution. The next big push will be for Lap Quilts. Big thanks to everyone who is making these deliveries a reality. The recipients are really enjoying these quilts.
Laconia Senior Center (Meals on Wheels): In February, 100 placemats were delivered to the Senior Center. This completes the 250 placemats that we committed to last fall. Going forward, the expectation is that 15-20 placemats will be delivered each month. The director of the Senior Center mentioned that the placemat recipients are very happy with this 'special gift.' Thanks for your support.
Spaulding Academy Quilts: There are no pending requests at this time. Spaulding Academy will let us know when there are new requests for our "Quilt Angels" to fulfill.
