COMMUNITY SERVICE JOYFUL QUILTERS
We meets twice monthly in the classroom building behind the Kent First Baptist Church, 11420 SE 248th Street. The time is 10 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. on the Fridays before Evergreen Piecemakers Guild meetings which are the second and 4th Mondays. Bring your lunch and a friend. Most supplies and projects are provided but do bring your sewing machine if you plan to sew. Please check the calendar for specific dates.
JOYFUL QUILTERS are committed to making quilts to provide comfort and warmth to those in need. Through the years and the tremendous leadership and dedicated volunteers like you, we have made hundreds of quilts which we donate to various organizations and agencies such as the list that follows.
Most supplies and fabrics are donated to us. We put together kits to sew, as well as tops to quilt and bind. We promote the use of longarm machines so encourage our members to practice their skills on our tops. Both Trains and Fabrics in Tacoma and Running Stitch in Kent offer their machines for community service quilting once a month, Running Stitch on the first Tuesday of the month from 10 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.
