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
QACDG received a $1,000 Handmade Hero award from Joann Fabric and Craft Stores. We thank Joann for the honor and its generous support.
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.
