How can I help?
You can assist us with piecing, quilting, clerical and organizational tasks, or fundraising events…or anything that is your particular expertise! If you cannot make an entire quilt top, we welcome individual blocks. Do what you feel comfortable doing. Our expectations about your participation match your desires! Our motto is "No Pressure"!
Where can I find a pattern for making a quilt?
Feel free to gather ideas from any resource such as books, magazines or even the World Wide Web! In the future, we plan on having some patterns at this site for your use.
Can I donate fabric or batting?
We accept donations of batting and good quality cotton fabrics of any color or pattern (including flannels).
Can I donate money?
Financial donations are used to purchase supplies such as batting and fabric when donations of those materials run low. We are a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization therefore your donations are tax deductible to the extent of the law.
When and where does Quilts From The Heart meet?
We have quilting groups that meet in Mountlake Terrace, Bellevue, Long Beach and Poulsbo, Washington. You are encouraged to participate as much or as little as you want. There is no pressure, just fun. Our expectations about your participation match your desires! In addition, we have two fun quilting retreats a year (spring and fall). For a schedule meetings and retreats, please go to the Calendar page.
How do I join?
Just go to the Membership page to print out the online application and send it in with your dues of $15.00 (per year) to join. Optional sponsorship levels are $25, $50, $75 or $100. Any amount over $15 is tax deductible; the additional money goes to purchase much needed fabric and batting.
How can your organization become recipients of our quilts?
Our recipients are small organizations serving "at risk" children, teenagers, and adults primarily in the north King and south Snohomish counties of western Washington.
