Community Quilts

Community Quilts of Magic Valley has been a part of the Desert Sage Quilt Guild for the past 15

years. We provide quilts for those who need them at no cost to the recipient. We also make

pillowcases for donation. In 2015 we donated 303 quilts of all sizes and 432 pillowcases to

different agencies in our valley.

 

We meet at KMVT in the Community Room; the entrance is on the north side. We set up

tables for sewing, sorting, kit making and quilt frames where quilts are tied. Our fabrics &

supplies are stored across the hall.

 

We meet on the first Wednesday and third Monday of each month until during the holidays

when we take a break until January. Many of our volunteers sew at home including binding

quilts and machine quilting smaller quilts.

 

We welcome donations of 100% cotton fabric and batting. All labor needed for the

construction, tying and or quilting of our quilts is donated by Magic Valley quilters; some of

whom are handicapped.ย Everyone is welcome to attend any of our sew days for an hour or all day.

  • St. Luke’s NICU and Pediatrics Valley House
  • MISTI Victory Home
  • St. Lukes of Jerome Sleep in Heavenly Peace
