CHARITY PROJECTS


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:

  • ConKerr Cancer - Brightly colored pillowcases are made for children dealing with cancer. ConKerr Chicago Chapter currently provides cases to Children's Memorial, UIC Chicago, Rush Medical Center, Lutheran General Hospital and St. Alexius Medical Center. The Guild usually has kits available at the monthly meetings that can be quickly sewn into pillowcases, but members are also encouraged to furnish the fabric to sew their own. Carol Krein (cd1971@wowway.com) collects NSQG's donation for ConKerr Cancer.

  • 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.
