Charity Projects

We are pleased as a guild to give back to our community. For 2018 we are again supporting SafeHave of Tarrant County. We support with our gifts of sewing. Items donated to charity are collected at our monthly meetings.

 

SafeHaven of Tarrant County

The mission of SafeHaven is to end domestic violence through safety, support, prevention and social change. Their shelter is frequently full of women and children in need. Their needs are tote bags for the women to carry their items in and nap mats for the children. The tote bags do not have a specification, however we have provided a simple tutorial here. The nap mats must measure 19″ – 24″ wide x 44″ long. Nap mats do not have to be pieced, whole cloth is great or build around an orphan block! Very sturdy construction is good as these will get heavy use and be washed a lot.
