If you can use a needle and/or scissors, we have a place for you!
VPC Mission Quilts started many years ago as ABC Quilts, which was a nationwide effort to make and give baby quilts to mothers who had little or nothing in the way of clothes for babies. Now our mission’s aim is to gift any child, baby, or person in need of the warmth of Jesus’ love wrapped around them. Some of the places we deliver quilts to are Crossroads Nogales Mission, Holy Cross Hospital and St. Andrews Children’s Clinic in Nogales, AZ, Banner University Medical Center, Diamond Children’s Medical Center, Aviva Children’s Services, More Than A Bed, and Springboard Home for Youth in Crisis.
Much love goes into the making of each quilt as it is passed from one set of hands to another. Many hands have handled the quilt by the time it reaches completion. The monies received from the Mission Committee are used to supply needed items, such as, material, thread, sewing machine repairs, and batting.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
VPC Mission Quilters meet on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Monday, from October through April, starting at 9:00 am with the last person leaving by 2:00 pm. Coffee and snacks are furnished by participants. Twice during the quilting season, we stop work and share in a pot-luck salad lunch.
We welcome anyone, who wants to experience the joy of creating and giving to those in need, to be a part of our quilting family. Our faithful quilters consist of full-time resident members, snowbird members, nonmember attendees, and friends of our church. Our goal, besides making quilts, is to always enjoy each other.
