Cottage Quilting prides itself in giving back to the community in which we live in. It is really important to help those that are living here in the Okanagan. We recognize that not everyone is as fortunate as us and we appreciate your help and support in giving back! Join us this year will you?STOCKINGS FOR KELOWNA
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas and we're gearing up for the Holiday Spirit! This year we will be accepting donations of stockings (full or empty) between November 5th - November 30th 2018. We will be providing these stockings to the families of the Ki-Low-Na Friendship society. There are children, women and men involved in this program. We hope you will help us make this a great Christmas for a variety of families. Last year we donated over 75 stockings to this local charity. It was very rewarding to see where these donations went and how to affected the families in our town. We are happy to provide a copy of the pattern, see below.
If you're interested, join us this Wednesday (the 2nd Wed of Every Month) for some CHARITY SEWING! You can come down, use our donated fabric and create the following: Stockings for the Ki-Low-Na Society, Heart Pillows for the Hospice House, Quilts for the NICU, Quilts for the Fire departments, Quilts for Families! Bring your sewing machine and your time. We'll provide everything else!
Cottage Quilting has also chosen the Ki-Low-Na Friendship Society this year as their charity of choice to help. It is always important to the Cottage Quilting Family to give back to the community we live in.
Ki-Low-Na is helping families and people that need a little extra support in our Indigenous community in the Okanagan. The current Housing crisis has found more people in need than ever before, please help us ensure no one goes hungry this season!
