Let’s Sew for Covid-19!

Many facilities across the state, including Bryan Hospital in Lincoln, are requesting we make masks, shoe covers and surgical hats. Tabitha is also in need of medical gowns.

Quilters have the 100% cotton firmly woven fabric and we all now have the time to make them during the quarantine. The general information sheet (see links to documents below) details how they can be donated at Bryan East, Lincoln. They provided sample patterns for the masks, shoe covers and surgical caps.  

We encourage you to donate in your community wherever they may be needed. Contact your local medical facilities to determine what they may need and what they are able to accept. Bryan, for instance, is not specific on the style of mask made, but other facilities may have preferences.

Info Specific to Bryan

Instead of dropping off finished items at Bryan, we are now collecting them at Sheila Green's home or at Cosmic Cow. (See drop off sites below.)

Quilt Show Canceled

We regret to announce that the 2020 Quilt Show at the Sesostris Shrine Center originally scheduled for July 17-18 is canceled due to concerns and uncertainties related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Quilt Show requires many months of work by our volunteers prior to the show date. Current restrictions with unknown timelines and the associated economic impact have led to this difficult decision.

Quilting Events

Be sure to check our Quilting Events listings for information on quilt shows and other related events scheduled throughout the state or surrounding areas. If you are an organizer of a quilting event, here's how you can add your event to the list.
