The Quilt Guild of Greater Victoria recently created 50 patriotic pillowcases for the adult clients at Devereaux. Nearly 50 hours were used as a community service project at their June meeting. Twenty-nine members participated and several constructed the pillowcases at home.
Karen Greer and Regina Smith presented the gifts to the clients July 3 in the growing center.
Other community service projects have been travel pillows with pillowcases for Wounded Warriors and Quilts for Friends of the Library that were auctioned for Harvey damage repairs which brought in $2,400. The guild meets on the fourth Thursday each month at Grace Presbyterian Church at 9 a.m., and all are welcomed. A sewing bee is held every other month at the Bronte Room of the library. Pictures of meetings and projects can be viewed at quiltguildofgreatervictoria.
