Satch Cares Grant (2024)
Our Community Service Bee received a “Satch Cares” grant from local restaurant Satchel’s Pizza. The $500 grant will go to cover costs of batting and thread.
Saint Elizabeth Circle Shop & Bazaar (2019, 2023)
The guild received a $500 grant from The Shop at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church. Funded by Holiday Bazaar profits, Saint Elizabeth Circle grants are given to support church ministries and community nonprofit charities. Each February, the Grants Committee reviews applications for grant funding and sends recommendations to the entire circle for approval.
Fairfield Batting Grant (2022)
The Community Service group applied for a “We Make for Good” grant from Fairfield Fibers. Shortly after applying, the company donated enough batting for approximately 20 quilts, and 10 pounds of Poly Fill fiberfill for medical dolls. Thank you Fairfield Fibers!
To celebrate National Quilt Month, in March 2020, QACDG collaborated with the Alachua County Library District to host The Quilt Trail – a stunning exhibit of quilts and quilting techniques at libraries throughout the county (except Archer). The goal was to introduce library patrons to the vast range of quilting styles and inspire them with the artistic possibilities of quilting. The 2021 show was hosted online only. Quilt Trail will return to the library branches in March 2023!
Handmade Hero Award (2021)
Many thanks to everyone who sewed and quilted for Community Service, and a special thanks for those who took photos and kept such good records to document our donations. You really helped provide the required documentation for the application.
