Community Involvement at The Quilting Season

Pillowcase Day

We are a hub for creating and donating pillowcases to the Children's ward at Mott's Hospital. You can join us in the store every 4th Wednesday of the month for pillowcase day at the store. You can come in to the store and grab a pre-made pillowcase kit for free; just finish and drop off at the store when done! You can even make a pillowcase on your own and drop it off. We are currently over 16,000 donated cases!

Pillowcase Day:  You are welcome to pick up kits to do at home until we can comfortably resume the days.

Premie Quilts

We are accepting donations of preemie quillts for the Motts Children's Hospital in Ann Arbor, MI. They are so appreciative for the quilts. They are used to cover the crib to give the baby some darker, quieter time, as the nursery is so busy 24 hours a day.

Preemie Day:  You are welcome to pick up kits to do at home until we can comfortably resume the days.

 

Please be sure to follow these guidlines:

     * Use 100% cotton fabric, batting and thread.
     * Size: approximately 36" x 40"
     * Use an orphaned quilt block or experiment with scraps, or we have

        ready-made kits at the store.
     * Don't worry about it being perfect! The babies won't care.
     * Wash it without fabric softener.
     * Put into a plastic bag to keep clean.
     * Deliver to The Quilting Season.

Doll Days

We get together the first friday of every month from 1-4pm to sew dolls for the children at Mott's Hospital. These dolls are used by the staff to explain what's happening. They are plain-faced, to allow the child to draw their face on, and they are dressed in scrubs.

Doll Day: You are welcome to pick up kits to do at home until we can comfortably resume the days.

Turtle Days

Turtle Days are the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month. Together with Joel, a child specialist at Mott's Children's Hospital, we have created a turtle doll for the families of terminally ill children. The turtle's shell is removable with a zippered pouch. The family can stuff the pouch with things to be buried with the child, but can keep the turtle's shell. The family thus keeps a piece of their child. 

Turtle Day: You are welcome to pick up kits to do at home until we can comfortably resume the days.
