Community Quilts
Holly Harvey

Recipient organizations include:

Astor Home for Children

Poughkeepsie Children's Home

Center for Prevention of Child Abuse

Carenet

Hyde Park Homeless Shelter

Veterans' Administration at Castle Point Hospital

Many of you have asked if there are required measurements for the quilts so here they are:

  • The Children's Home boy's cottage, prefers quilts approximately 60"x60".
  • Astor Home prefers quilts approximately 50” X 80”.
  • The veterans like a lap quilt approximately 60” square.
  • The quilts donated to young children measure 36”, 40”, 42” up to 48” square.  Baby/toddler quilts are meant to be “cuddle” quilts and should be no larger than a crib size quilt.

Quilts for Veterans

Community Quilts will resume meeting at Liz's Barn on Thursday, May 16 at 10 AM. While a little sewing may occur, much of our time is likely to be taken up with sorting and organizing the quilts in various stages of completion that have been turned in during the winter, as well as fabrics that have been donated. Bring a bag lunch. Hope to see you there. (For the address of Liz’s Barn – check your membership list for Liz Kraayenbrink.)
