From crib size to king size quilt, we support local charities.
We also have members who create fidget quilts for charity.
Masks for local organizations
Our guild has received requests from several local organizations, medical facilities, and we are rallying to support them by sewing masks! The CDC guidelines for use of homemade masks is available on their website.
There are many patterns out there, with/without pockets, using elastic, fabric ties, bias tape or twill tape for securing the mask to the head. Be sure to wash fabric in hot water to preshrink before cutting and sewing the masks.
Some of the tutorials we are using include:
A few of the organizations that we are supporting include:
Our efforts were recently featured in an article on Sarasota Magazine's website and in the Sarasota Herald-Tribune.
We have several smaller groups meet throughout the greater Sarasota area. Named after the dolphin pods that swim in the Gulf of Mexico, we encourage our members to visit a pod and sew with some new friends!
