Charity work at NSQG is a big part of what we do and we strongly encourage member participation in service to others. Our Guild offers support in several areas and the following projects are currently in progress:

  • Hospice Quilts - Guild members assist Helene Detzner (grannyhelene22@att.net) in making quilts for the Rainbow Hospice in Park Ridge. Rainbow Hospice cares for critically ill patients who are no longer able to receive sufficient care at home and can no longer be taken care of in a hospital. A quilt is on the foot of the bed when a new patient is admitted and becomes a treasured keepsake of the family when the patient has expired. Kits are available at the monthly meetings but volunteers may also use their own fabrics. Each Hospice Quilt Kit contains ten (10) 4-1/2-inch strips x 45-inch strips of fabric, four (4) 2-1/2-inch x 45-inch strips of fabric for binding and a 45x48-inch piece of fabric for backing. Batting is furnished by the quilter. Other quilt designs are also accepted but should not exceed the 45x45-inch finished dimensions. Helene welcomes fabric and batting donations.
