Getting Sewcial

November 24, 2020

     In the spring, the San Francisco Quilters Guild Community Outreach and QuiltAway programs committed to make twenty twin-size quilts for our residents. They made and exceeded their goal! Thirty twin-bed quilts were presented to us on September 29th. The Guild’s president, Maren Larsen, and co-chairs of the Guild’s community outreach projects, Adrienne Hickman and Jessica Church, stopped by and delivered the bright and cheery quilts. Our hearts are filled with gratitude!

“The reason I am proud to be a member of the San Francisco Quilters Guild is, first and foremost, for me is the sense of community I feel when I sew and share time with fellow quilters”.                                                                                                                                -Maren Larsen, Guild President

    The Quilters Guild has been making a donation of original quilts to our women and children for over twenty years. They began sewing this latest project for us last June urging members to pick up kits and create finished blocks for each quilt. The co-chairs collect the blocks (which in our case was 960!) and the quilters then turned the blocks into twin-size quilts.

         It is such a beautiful thing to see an organization such as the San Francisco Quilters Guild continue to support their community during this pandemic. We are humbled by the quilters ongoing generosity to the vulnerable families Epiphany Center serves.

     The San Francisco Quilters Guild is a community of quilters reaching out and supporting the community through quilting. Founded in 1981, the Quilters Guild will celebrate 40 years on October 5, 2021. The Guild currently has over 250 members.
