Quilts for Ukraine

 Dear Greenville SC Modern Quilt Guild Members,


 As philanthropy chairman, I have been searching for another opportunity for our guild to contribute quilts to comfort Ukrainian refugees.  Our last effort was hampered by short notice, but we did manage to send on 9 quilts.  Several members have told me they have quilts to donate if we have another opportunity.  I have found the perfect conduit for our quilt donations. Please check out the website WRAP UKRAINE WITH QUILTS by Hello Cottons. They have collected over 6,000 quilts from 41 states and also funds to pay for shipping. Their process includes two-way communication between the donors and recipients.  Their website and Facebook page have a wealth of information and is very inspirational.  Please freely share this website with your friends and neighbors!


We will be collecting new or gently used quilts for children and adults to be sent to Lehi, Utah.  Quilts no larger than twin size are requested; child size and throw size are preferred. See website for further details.


DEADLINE:   Sept 15th



                                      At the July, August and September meetings

                                      Bernina: We're in Stitches     2310 E North St     Greenville, SC

                                      Mariettas Quilt and Sew        3421 N Industrial Dr    Simpsonville, SC


SHIPPING: The guild will cover shipping for quilts collected within deadline.  Members may also continue to donate by direct mailing - address and details on website


Thank you in advance for your generosity, if you have questions,
