Posted: Friday, Dec 28th, 2012

Members of the Oregon Coastal Quilters Guild gathered in December for a “stitch-in” to make quilts for local charities. Pictured are: Norma Horn, front-left, Anne Hendrickson and Toni Brodie; Monica Lyons, back-left, Wilma Roles, Linda MacKown, Rose Shaw, and Janet Baldwin. (Courtesy photo)

Oregon Coastal Quilters Guild members have made and donated 98 quilts, 75 pillows to Samaritan Pacific Hospital, and 94 pillows to the Lincoln County Animal Shelter during 2012. The tally includes 24 quilts to the people affected by the apartment fire in Toledo, 58 quilts to Children’s Advocacy Center, seven to the Siletz tribal elders for their children’s care center, and eight lap robes to the dialysis center.

Samaritan Pacific has welcomed the pillows for their surgery patients for some time. The pillows are lightly stuffed with polyester fiberfill. The animal shelter pillows, however, are stuffed with fabric and batting scraps that would otherwise find their way into area landfills.
