Comfort Quilt Program
One of the most fun and rewarding things about being a member of Chino Valley Quilters is making Comfort Quilts; quilts we provide free of charge to those in the community in need of a little helping hand.
Comfort Quilts are made using kits. Our guild furnishes the blocks, batting and backing to be used in making up the kits. Members then select a kit or two to complete and return to the Comfort Quilt Committee.
This year, we will be holding Gigantic Sew-Ins at our monthly meeting. Our Committee provides the materials and members tote their machines and supplies to sew as many Comfort Quilts as possible. If not completed, members are encouraged to take their quilts home and finish them to be turned in at the next month's meeting.
Much of the materials used in the kits is donated by the very generous people of our community.
We thank everyone who donates and members that sew!
Our program and the take-home kits it provides are a vital part of our ongoing effort to meet the need for Comfort Quilts in our community. In 2012, our sixty-seven-member guild created and gave away 291 made-with-love quilts to local organizations including:
This year we are setting a goal of 200 quilts and, of course, we would love to have even more as there is always a family or organization who can use one of our beautiful quilts.

Want to help?
Donate fabric, thread or other sewing materials!
Need to clear a path through the sewing room? No room left in the garage for the car? We'll gladly take your fabric scraps, thread, batting and other sewing supplies and put them to good use.
Chino Valley Quilters members create quilts for many community-support projects, often donating their own fabric and materials in addition to their time. Because there is ongoing need for Comfort Quilts and other donations, we always need materials. We also accept financial donations toward purchase of these supplies.
