The primary goal of the Comfort Quilt Committee is to create quilts for distribution to local charities and people in need. Each year, we select two Focus Projects.
In the past, we have focused on giving quilts to the Waukesha Women's Center, wheelchair quilts for a local care facility, the VA HopTel, and Project Linus. The Oconomowoc Quilters' Guild has also provided quilts to Christmas baskets, the local school districts, fire victims and ill individuals. We average over 100 quilts given throughout the year. It is our belief and hope that our gift of a quilt will bring joy, peace and love to our community.
If you are interested in volunteering, please join the Oconomowoc Quilters' Guild. Of course, we are always interested in donations of quilting fabrics, cotton batting, quilt tops, or monetary gifts.
