Prairie Star Quilt Guild Mission to Provide Service to the community comes in many different forms. We have various groups with different initiatives and would love to have you join in our mission as many hands make light work.
Quilts of Valor – The Mission of the Quilts of Valor Foundation is to cover Service Members and Veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor.
Kids Quilts & Pillowcases – We offer kits of all types and we encourage you to be creative! Try something new or help us out by finishing projects with machine quilting, long arming or binding. We can find the perfect project for you! We collect finished quilts, tie blankets and pillowcases for delivery to Ronald McDonald House as well as local hospitals, police and fire departments.
NICU Blankets for Central Dupage Hospital – The blankets help keep the isolate darker and quieter.
Fidget Quilts are meant for use by senior and children with special needs. There are no specific rules as your creativity is the best ingredient.
Marble Mazes are a quick project that are very helpful for children. They can be calming, offer a way to focus and are good therapy for those needing better finger/hand coordination.
Pet Beds help keep a little more fabric out of the landfill as well as helps comfort to animals in local shelters awaiting adoption.
New Life for Old Bags is a collaboration of folks of all ages and abilities to make mats for the homeless out of used plastic bags. Not a crocheter ? We also collect Plarn yarn skeins for those who do!
