000 Inches, Baby Quilts for Donation, Charity Work, Karen's 10

Karen’s 10,000 Inches Annual Report for 2017

We were short of our goal in November of baby quilts for the year so I asked for help.  I received such an overwhelming response in December.  21 quilts were turned in at the December meeting.  I think that was a record for a given month.  We not only met our goal,  we passed the previous two years.  Our total for 2017 was 81 baby quilts with a total of 13,122 inches.  Thank you all so much.  The following ladies contributed to this record:

  • Mary Becker
  • Sara Wright
  • Viola Cotton
  • Marilyn Fox
  • Pat Sparks
  • Judy Fox

Our baby quilts are delivered to four organizations: The Methodist Women’s Group, Pregnancy Resource Center of Rolla, Birth Right of Rolla, and Russell House.  The quilts are given to mothers in need of assistance.  I bring quilt kits to every meeting for anyone to take home and make a baby quilt. Fabric, batting, and pattern are included in each kit.

I would also like to thank Sue Brunner and Robbie Perkins for their donation of fabric along with a Master Gardener friend Sharon Vandyke.  Thank you all for your support of this service project.  It is a pleasure to have the opportunity to chair this project.
