Annually the Starlight Quilters Guild donates $250 to a charitable community organization that supports and encourages the art of sewing and quilting.
2022 Recipient – Ronald MacDonald House, Kansas City
Ronald McDonald House serves an important function in housing parents and caregivers so they can be close to their child while they are receiving care at the hospital.
McDonald houses pride themselves on being a “home away from home” and personalized touches go a long way to supporting that kind of care. We have decided to provide sewn pillowcases and quilts.
Any lap size quilts (or larger) will be gladly welcomed. The pillowcases they use are standard size and below are some links for different patterns and tutorials if needed. Thank you! Bring donations to our monthly meetings. Bonnie Leigh will deliver on an ongoing basis.
