APRIL - Quilt Donation Humanitarian Service Project

Jewels, in partnership with, Stitching Hearts Worldwide will be collecting quilt tops, regular and baby quilts, blankets and other items to donated to help refugees in Urkraine and elsewhere.  

Stitching Hearts is a local charity based out of Pleasant Grove, UT that provides service opportunities for individuals, groups, and businesses wanting to help those in need. They provide service opportunities to collect and create items that are then distributed throughout Utah, and to those who suffer from natural disasters, human injustices, and unforeseen tragedies beyond their control around the world. 

 
Jewels is asking our customers to join with us in helping with this humanitarian
project by donating and helping to make and bind quilts.

 

Please help us as we work to help provide 600 handmade quilts to refugee families. There are many levels of involvement where you can participate:

  • Donating new quilts and/or blankets
  • Donating fabric and batting to be made into a quilt
  • Picking up and using Clearance fabric from Jewels that is sewn into quilt tops (see sizing below)
  • Helping bind quilts that Jewel’s has quilted on the longarm. (For this specific project we will not be tying quilts. We will only be quilting on the long arm.)
  • Taking quilt tops, batting and bottoms home and quilting them on your longarm

 Sizing

There are no specific sizes, but they recommend something within the measurements below:
~ Baby: 41-45" x 56-60"
~ Twin: 67-72" x 85-90"
~ Queen: 80-84" x 86-90"

 
If we have an over abundance of quilts and are not able to quilt all of them Stitching Hearts will accept tops of quilts.  They then will provide the batting and backing, and have volunteers to envelope them to be tied.

We will take quilts to Stitching Hearts on a weekly basis, so they will be able to be put on the next plane heading to the Ukraine refugee camps.


In grateful appreciation of those helping in this Service Project by donating, sewing & binding quilts,
Jewel's will be giving you a 25% Off coupon for one cut of fabric, one yard or more.  (Coupon expires May 31, 2022)
