Quilts for Kids (Q4K) in the Bitterroot is patterned after a similar organization in Missoula. The Missoula ladies got this group started by sharing their knowledge and by generously providing two quilts! The group’s mission is to provide a “hug” via a quilt to each child in any kind of trauma in Ravalli County. They are accomplishing this goal by combining time, talent and donated fabric. They will accept any size fabric, leftover blocks, strips, thread and batting and invite any one to join them to sew a quilt top, bind or make up kits. They will also accept donations to buy batting.
One and all are always welcome. You can come and sew with the group, take home kits or supplies for making your own kit/quilt ideas.
The group meets every 4th Wednesday, noon to 5 pm and the 2nd Friday 10 am to 4 pm at the Westview Center at 103 S. 9th St. in Hamilton.
The Farmers State Bank offices in Darby, Hamilton, Victor and Florence will accept donations of money, fabric, quilts or thread. There is a quilter in each branch and they will see to it that donated supplies reach the group.
