Quilt drive for our unseen heroes
Various organizations are doing quilt drives for the victims of the shooting and their families. We plan on doing a quilt drive for the unseen heroes of this tragedy. This includes the first responders- police officers, paramedics, security guards, dispatch center personnel, Mandalay Bay employees, morticians, and hospital personnel. We want to show them our love and support here in the community and thank them for their service.
We will be collecting quilts until November 4th. Distribution of quilts will start immediately thru the police department, fire department, AMR/Medicwest, UMC hospital and other organizations. We will be putting small labels on the back of all of the quilts that say Vegas Strong. If you would like to put the label on yourself you are more than welcome to do so, we have premade labels here in the store. If you would like to just bring in the quilt without the label, we will have the label sewn on for you.
QUILT INFO: We are accepting any finished quilt regardless of size or pattern. We ask that they be bright, cheery colors that show our love for our heroes. Everyone has quilt tops that are sitting waiting to be finished! Please finish some of your UFO's and bring them in. We will also be accepting quilt tops that are waiting to be quilted or tied as well.
DEADLINE: Please have all quilts dropped off at the shop or mailed by November 4th.
UPDATES: Please check our website under the Vegas Strong tab for current updates. We will also be sending out emails as well as updating our social media platforms to inform everyone of any updates or answer any questions that arise (Vegas Strong tab should be loaded by the end of the day).
CARDS: We have thank you and appreciation cards if you would like to fill one out. Take a moment to stop by and write a note to one of our heroes.
FRAMES: Quilt frames will be set up in the shop for volunteers to tie quilt tops that have been donated.
LONGARM VOLUNTEERS: We are looking for volunteers that own longarm machines that can donate their time quilting quilt tops that have been donated.
SEW-INS: There will be sew-ins specifically for our Quilt Drive on October 10th, 11th, 17th, 18th, 24th and 25th. Come sew with us or volunteer your time to tie a quilt during one of these sew-ins.
This is our home. These are our people. VEGASSTRONG. Please help in any way that you can. Thank you for all that you do. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions concerning this project or if you have questions about donating other items.
