For a number of years our guild has donated quilted placemats and fabric gift bags to local charities for Christmas, and this year despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this tradition continued.
Placemats feature seasonal holiday fabric on one side, and something interesting on the other so they can be used all year round.
We donated 46 placemats for Arnprior Area' Meals on Wheels, which Jane (pictured below at left) delivered to the Arnprior-Braeside-McNab Seniors at Home Program.
Our guild members of West Ottawa Community made 18 placemats, and they were donated to the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre for their local meals on wheels.
Our guild members also contributed 100 fabric string bags! The ladies filling the bags at the Roman Catholic Church Parish Hall in Arnprior were very happy to receive them! They had all the supplies lying on the tables waiting to fill them. Once these bags were filled they were donated to the Arnprior and District Food Bank .
Thanks for all the charity sewing and the spirit of giving! This helps make a few more lives enriched in our communities.
