Community Service

East Cobb Quilters’ Guild has a long history of community service. Members give freely of their time and energy to create great quilts and other items for donation to area charities. Often gathering in small groups to sew, members also benefit from the friendships that develop and deepen while these projects are created.

Placemats for Meals on Wheels

Hundreds of older adults and disabled individuals are served by the Cobb County Meals on Wheels Program staffed by volunteer drivers.  Lunch is a lot more fun with a pretty placemat, especially at holiday time.  Placemats should measure about 12 inches by 16 inches, or larger.

To discuss further community service with our guild, please email our Community Service Chair Abbi.
